The protection of digital rights and data protection are among the most present topics in the international debate. In recent years, the Chinese social network TikTok has come under the magnifying glass. The European (and non-European) chancelleries are most concerned about the rules for controlling and protecting the privacy of minors. The application verification systems, in fact, are often bypassed and allow children under thirteen (age limit to register on the platform) to access it, without excessive problems. The rules on the processing of user data, often used for commercial purposes, are also perplexing. To these two aspects is added the problem relating to the approximate control of the contents. Just think of the so-called video-challenge: challenges that, more than once, have pushed children to carry out extreme actions, causing, in some cases, even death. Issues on which regulatory intervention by lawmakers at a transnational level appears necessary.
