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, Amazon Fire TV App Store, and Samsung Smart TV App Store using the COPPA Rule factors shown below & make those results available to the public at ratings.pixalate.com.
