French deputies discussed the bill, which aims to combat hate on social media, for the second time.
The bill, which was unanimously accepted at the session, requires children under the age of 15 to get permission from their parents to register on social media platforms.
Accordingly, platforms will need to use a system to verify the age of users and whether minors have permission from their parents.
Platforms that do not comply with the rules can be fined up to 1% of their worldwide turnover.
Parents will be able to request platforms to suspend the social media accounts of their 15-year-old children.
The bill will be discussed again in the Senate.
The bill also covers the obligation of social media and online platforms to respond to legal requests regarding electronic content within 10 days as part of judicial investigations. This period given to the platforms is maximum 8 hours when there is a risk of serious damage to person or property.
The bill will be discussed again in the Senate, which is the other wing of the French Parliament.
In order for a bill to be finally passed in France, the two houses of Parliament, the House and the Senate, must approve the same bill.
