Does Kim Kardashian West Allow Her Oldest Daughter North to Have Social Media Accounts?

Kim Kardashian West’s children used to be small babies, but now her oldest daughter, North, is growing up and becoming more independent every day.

In this day and age, social media usage is a common thing for kids all over the world, so fans might be wondering where Kardashian West stands on the issue. Does North have a social media account? If not, will Kardashian West allow her daughter to create one soon?

How old is Kim Kardashian West’s daughter North?

North was born on June 15, 2013, which means that she is 7 years old in 2020.

North is considered an older Kardashian-Jenner kid, but she is far from being the oldest among her cousins. Mason and Penelope Disick – both are Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick’s children – are 10 and 8 years old, respectively.

North has three younger siblings: Saint (b. 2015), Chicago (b. 2018), and Psalm (b. 2019). She also has a few younger cousins.

Back in 2016, when North was only three years old, Kardashian West revealed at an event in Los Angeles that she was not sure when she would allow her oldest daughter to have a social media account. However, she noted that she would have to “have a conversation” with North about it, as reported by Harper’s Bazaar.

In any case, Kardashian West also shared that, if North were to be active on social media, she would most likely monitor her closely. She said: “I kind of went through that with my youngest sisters Kylie and Kendall. They wanted Facebook accounts and me, Khloe and Kourtney had their passwords and spied on them for my mom.”

Kardashian West seems to have relaxed her social media rules a bit these days. She shared with Entertainment Tonight in February 2020 that North actually has a TikTok account. However, it is private and it will be a while before fans get to see North on the platform.

“North has a private TikTok account, so we do lots of TikToks together, and she puts them in drafts,” Kardashian said. “She’s not allowed to post them, but we have a lot of TikToks.”

Kardashian West has also revealed that she herself is more “cautious” about her own social media usage now that she is a mother.

“I think at the beginning, I didn’t know what the word ‘privacy’ really meant,” Kardashian West told E! News. “As you get older and you have kids, and you realize you do want to value some privacy, I figured out a really good balance of sharing what I want to share.”

Additionally, she added that  she does not “overshare” as much as she used to, especially since the safety of her family is important to her.

“I learned firsthand that if you share too much, it can be a little bit dangerous at times,” Kardashian West added.
