US President Biden Calls For Stricter Regulation For Big Tech

Summary: President Joe Biden calls for stricter policing of big tech activities in relation to privacy, safety, and competition. The administration continues to find new ways to make it harder for tech companies to exploit citizens.


President Joe Biden called for stricter regulation of big tech companies in the United States as it relates to privacy, safety, and competition.


Biden’s address attempted to rally the legislation to move quickly.


“Pass bipartisan legislation to strengthen antitrust enforcement and prevent big online platforms from giving their own products an unfair advantage. It’s time to pass bipartisan legislation to stop Big Tech from collecting personal data on kids and teenagers online, ban targeted advertising to children, and impose stricter limits on the personal data these companies collect on all of us,” he said in his address.

In the past months, the tech cycle in the US has had to do with online safety, privacy and anti-competition practices. Yet, despite it being a recurring theme, it appears that little have been done.

The focus has started with leaders in respective fields like Facebook, Google, and Apple in anti-competition relating to ads, Uber and Lyft in ride-hailing, and more recently, TikTok in how foreign authorities handle data collection.


While Biden’s administration continues to portray itself as a friend of the people, it has the stain of how it got into power through the help of big tech. These accusations, given new fuel by the Twitter files once in a while will continue to shade the new government for sometime. Regardless, it seems bent on ensuring that citizens are not exploited by big tech.
