Amazon gives teens their own login, but parents retain power

Amazon has introduced a new way for teenagers to shop on Amazon using a unique login.

Order approvals are switched on by default, so if a parent wants to allow a teen to shop Amazon without each item being reviewed they'll have to explicitly disable this feature.

The Washington Post had also reported that the Israeli spies discovered hacking tools that could only originated from the U.S. The NIC reportedly said the FSB could use that access to hack sensitive U.S. government and industrial networks.

Here's how it works: when your teen finds something they want, they place the order on the app with a parent-approved payment method. "We've listened to families and have built a great experience for both teens and parents", commented Michael Carr, Vice President, Amazon Households. Teens can also be assigned pre-set spending limits per order as an alternative to having orders reviewed. Parents previously might have had to share their log-in credentials, along with their credit card numbers, with their teen, or set up separate accounts for their children that they'd likely have to check regularly.

Giving these extra benefits to teenagers should help Amazon hook its next generation of customers to its e-commerce site and other services.
