“Sec.A120.111.AA USE BY CHILDREN PROHIBITED. (a) An individual between 13 and 18 years of age may not use a social media platform. (b)AA Upon amendment to the definition of ‘child’ under the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, 15 U.S.C. 6501 – 6506, this Subchapter shall apply to any person younger than 18 years of age. Sec.A120.112.AA ACCOUNT AND VERIFICATION REQUIREMENTS. (a) A social media platform shall: (1)AA require the social media platform’s users to use an account to access the social media platform; and (2)AA verify that each account is held by an individual who is at least 18 years of age. (b)AA A social media platform shall verify the age of the account holder by requiring the account holder to provide a copy of the account holder’s driver’s license along with a second photo showing both the account holder and the driver’s license in a manner that allows the social media company to verify the identity of the account holder,” says a new bill in the Texas State House which sounds super practical and easy to enforce.
