Protecting children's privacy

Created: 01/29/2014 5:36 PM WHEC.com

There's a new push to keep your children safe online. Verizon has team up with a website, privo.com, to form the "Minors Trust Framework."

Once you register, any time a website or app needs parental consent, you'll be notified. The goal is to make it easier for parents to know what sites are requesting information from their kids. 

The program is free for consumers. It is funded with a grant from the Department of Commerce.
