  • I received a message saying my account was now locked and would require parental consent in order to process my data, or my account will be deleted, one user, who is now 20, told the Guardian.
  • He had signed up for an account in 2009 without entering a birthday, and then put a fake age in once the company introduced the ability to add that information, before recently updating it to his actual birthday.
  • The company refused to publicly comment on the topic but a source confirmed that it had updated its policy to lock the accounts created by children who had claimed that they were above the age of 13 years when they signed up.
