Mobile App Manual Review under COPPA Rule: ‘Match Triple 3D: Match Master'

Jun 7, 2023 2:30:00 PM

Welcome to Pixalate’s CTV & Mobile App Manual Reviews According to COPPA, a series containing the detailed factors the Trust & Safety Advisory Board educators used to assess an app’s child-directedness.

The educators manually review thousands of mobile apps available in the Google Play & Apple App Stores as well as connected TV (CTV) apps from the Roku Channel Store and Amazon Fire TV App Store using the COPPA Rule factors shown below & make those results available to the public at ratings.pixalate.com.

This post takes a look at a popular mobile app (1 million+ downloads) from the Google Play and Apple App Stores. Our reviewer discusses how the subjective factors set forth in the COPPA Rule apply to the app and factor into the reviewer's determination as to whether the app is child-directed or general audience (i.e., it is not targeting children).

The gameplay screenshots for Match Triple 3D: Match Master show that it is a fun and challenging game where you match three objects with great visual elements. This app is directed to a mixed audience that is child-directed based on the 3D animated objects and subject matter of the game.  In the about this game section, it states, “ fun matching puzzle game, which is easy for everyone….”  This triple-pair identical matching game exercises your logical reasoning and a relaxing vibe.

The advertising is shown at the bottom of the screen while playing and also in between levels. Ads such as TikTok, Garden Escapes, Royal Match, and Monopoly Go are shown consistently at the bottom of the game. These ads are geared toward a general audience. 

The game is rated E for Everyone in the Google play store and 4+ in the Apple Store. There is no age gate available. Once downloaded the game is readily available to play immediately.


The developer’s privacy policy states, “in the event that we learn that we have collected personal data from a child under age of 16, we will delete that information as soon as possible."
