What steps does Facebook take to keep minors safe?

We work hard to help keep people on Facebook safe. For minors, we've designed many of our features to remind them of who they're sharing with and to limit interactions with strangers.
For example, we provide minors with specific education about what it means to post publicly. We also protect sensitive information, such as minors' contact info, school and birthday, from appearing in search to a public audience. Additionally, we take steps to remind minors that they should only accept friend requests from people they know.
If you're concerned about your teen's safety on Facebook, you can read our safety resources for parents.
