Is there reason to remove the children from here?

+5 votes
I had several children that I notice have been demoed.  Where are they?  I am trying to keep this as accurate as possible but see at east 4 children removed.   Where did they go?  Am I no longer allowed to put small children into the tree or??

Hi Lauraine ... parents or, I guess, the child, need to be the manager of profiles for someone less than 13 years of age.  This results from the European privacy movement ... GDPR.  If you search G2G for GDPR you'll find lots of information on the subject.

Existing children's profiles, that were not managed by their parents, were removed about a month ago.

You can read about this and other changes that were made in the GDPR FAQ.

Also, this was announced as going to happen multiple times, including in weekly emails.
I did read this, but thought they would still be available to me.  Very sad as NOW have to go to the parents and ask for the information over again.  Had no idea they were to be removed from me as well.
