What is the Maryland Kids Code?

Introduced by Delegates Jared Solomon (D-18) and C.T. Wilson (D-26), along with Maryland Senators Benjamin Kramer (D-19) and Chris West (R-42), the Maryland Kids Code unanimously passed out of General Assembly on April 6, 2024 and signed into law by Governor Moore on May 9, 2024.

The Kids Code requires privacy by design and default, and it requires online products and services reasonably likely to be accessed by children and teens under 18 to be age appropriate and designed in kids’ best interests. While Big Tech attempts to fight the AADC with infinite resources and lawsuits, legislators and civil society organizations are continuing to prioritize kids’ safety and wellbeing online.
