A child protection charity told parents to ask their children's permission before uploading images of them online. Parents are divided on whether it is right to upload photos of their children. Parents uploading children's photos is called "sharenting" – from the words "share" and "parenting". The biggest reason for not sharing kids' photos is to protect their privacy. Every uploaded photo of a child creates a digital footprint that will be there in their adult life.

Sharenting is now very common in the USA. Most babies and young children already have an online presence on social media. Proud parents want to share photos of their children, but there are dangers of sharing photos of kids. Parents often include personal information about their children. This puts kids at risk of identity theft. There is also a danger when parents publish real-time information about where their children are.
