Online Safety Act becomes law in the UK


Recommended Posts

Internet safety legislation that will require social media companies to keep children safe online has passed into law in the UK.

The Online Safety Act received royal assent in Parliament on Thursday, bringing the new rules into effect.

Technology Secretary Michelle Donelan said it meant the UK would become “the safest place to be online in the world”.


The UK government says its Online Safety Act will protect people, particularly children, on the internet. Critics say it’s ineffective against dangerous misinformation and may be a threat to privacy.

I did have some concerns about what this might entail for us here on the forums but it seems as though the types of content that they are saying site owners have a responsibility to protect users against are already things that we would never allow on here anyway.
