Following its relaunch, the youth portal of the data protection supervisory authorities of the German federal and state governments, youngdata.de, has a completely new design. The website has been fundamentally revised and adapted to the current usage behavior of young people. In particular, it has been optimized for fast mobile access via smartphone.
In addition to classic topics such as security, tracking or the right to one's own image, young people can also find information on trends in social networks, cyberbullying or hate speech. On new developments such as artificial intelligence (AI) and tools like ChatGPT, the youth portal teaches students about the opportunities and risks involved and the role their personal data plays in this. Anyone who wants to use the Internet actively and creatively will learn a lot about the advantages and disadvantages of the services and applications. Young people can also use the website to find out about data protection services in their area.
