The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA") is a United States federal law passed by Congress in 1998 to protect children’s online privacy. COPPA required the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to issue and enforce a rule implementing the law. The FTC’s COPPA Rule (“the COPPA Rule” or “the Rule”) became effective in 2000, and it was amended in 2013. The FTC is presently in the process of reviewing the Rule again. COPPA is enforced by the FTC and by state Attorneys General, who have the authority to seek civil penalties from companies that violate the law.
