(a) accelerating our integrity and privacy work to ensure the safest possible experience for teens and
(b) building a version of Instagram that allows people under the age of 13 to safely use Instagram for the first time.”

Facebook about their Instagram Safety Measures For Teens said that:
“This feature depends on our work to find peoples’ ages using machine learning technology, and the age people give us when they sign up. As we move to end-to-end encryption, we’re investing in features that protect the privacy and keep people safe without accessing the content of DMs”
This news has come about after Instagram published in its blog that they are working on their app for kids under age 13 which will protect them from adults and also stop interactions with adults.
How Instagram Kids App Will Help Kids
Instagram said that the app that they are making will work on the Artificial Intelligence that will find whether the teen that is signing up is of minimum age.
If 1% is doubt that the teen that is signing up is not of the minimum age then Instagram will block that device IP and the Instagram app will not work on that device.
This means that only teens are on the Instagram Kids app and not adults. This will stop the interactions from adults to teens.
Instagram Kids App Launch Date
As per the report the Instagram App is in development and it will take much time as expected because it is a clone of the Instagram app and will be designed only for Kids.
The accounts made by the teens are will be private this means there will not be any feature of public account. This will help the teens to remain safe from the adult’s content.
