Technology's Design can influence people's choices. 'Persuasive design' is a design practice that companies use to change and influence users' thoughts and behaviours. These techniques are frequently implemented on the internet. Some apps and games are designed to persuade people to give up their time and money. The techniques they use are sometimes called 'persuasive design techniques'. What young people can do to stop some of these persuasive techniques from negatively affecting them are: turning off autoplay, muting push notifications, taking breaks from their devices, asking a trusted adult to help etc.
