San Francisco: Facebook-owned photo-sharing platform Instagram will now ask new users for their date of birth when an account is created.
Previously, Instagram users were required to confirm they were ages 13 or older when signing up, but they didn’t have to provide an exact birthday.
The new addition is Instagram’s attempt to better protect young users and provide a ‘more age-appropriate experience overall’.
The firm noted that it will pull birthdates from Facebook for user’s who have connected their profile and editing your birth date on Facebook will do the same on Instagram. (IANS)
