YouTube will also begin restricting young viewers from accessing content related to eating disorders, including videos that discuss recovery. Videos about recovery where the creator discusses past eating disorder behaviors may require viewers to be over 18 years old or prompt users to sign in if they’re not already. Additionally, eating disorder resource panels will appear below relevant videos in the US, UK, India, Canada, Japan, Korea, Mexico, France, and Germany, with more regions to come in the future.
