Not only because of the harassment they may suffer, but also because of the number of criminals who can take advantage of this situation.“This is a really dangerous idea that puts the safety of our children at risk. We ask Facebook to abandon the launch of Instagram Kids ”- United States prosecutors have stated
On the contrary, Facebook does not think that such a bad plan. They defend Instagram for children and ensure that the safety and privacy of minors would be paramount and that they would even avoid showing ads in said application. Facebook also alleges that minors already use social media and that it is better that they do it in a protected and controlled social network than they do it secretly and lying to their parents.
