YouTube to regulate sick pranksters with age restrictions

Daily Mail - Science & tech 

YouTube is finally doing more to crack down on disturbing videos creating sick by pranksters to frighten children. YouTube is putting in place age-restrictions which means users can flag inappropriate content in the main app to stop children being exposed to disturbing videos. It normally takes five days for content to get from YouTube to YouTube Kids. 'Age-restricted content is automatically not allowed in YouTube Kids', said Ms Downs who said the new team should be live in a few weeks. 'The YouTube team is made up of parents who are committed to improving our apps and getting this right', she said.
