Louisiana lawmakers passed a bill this week that would require minors to get parental permission to sign up for online accounts, including on social media platforms and multiplayer games.
Parents or guardians would also be allowed to cancel their child’s existing accounts on platforms such as Instagram, TikTok, YouTube and more as of Aug. 1, 2024.
The measure needs to be signed by Gov. John Bel Edwards to become law. If it does, Louisiana will become the latest state to limit minors’ access to social media and other online apps, following in the footsteps of Utah and Arkansas.
