To Safeguard Kids, Adult Content Sites Might Employ Use Of ID

The Online Safety Act may require websites featuring explicit content to implement credit card checks and photo ID matching to verify users are above 18 years old.

Ofcom has released preliminary instructions for online platforms on safeguarding children from explicit content, aiming to ensure compliance with recently enacted internet regulations.

The suggestions involve employing photo ID verification, wherein an uploaded document like a passport is cross-referenced with a live image captured at the same time.

The preliminary advice emphasizes that websites should utilize age verification methods that are technically precise, sturdy, dependable, and impartial.
