Is Age Verification Only A UK Phenomena ?
While businesses work to become compliant with GDPR globally, some have mistakenly thought that Age Verification is only a matter in the UK. The law on Age Verification for things like alcohol, tobacco, pornography, and all other facets of the adult web originates in the UK but it is already spreading to a number of other countries.
Australia, for example, is already looking at adding age verification laws of their own. To prevent children from viewing material meant for adults, countries are looking for solutions. AV Secure is dedicated to providing age verification, and our state-of-the-art technology is a top choice for both consumers and businesses for age verification.
The debate around age verification is heated. Online privacy groups are concerned about the collection of user's private information, which is one of the reasons that AV Secure exclusively uses The Age Verification Card that allows people anonymity. When the British Government passed orders to compel pornography sites to install age verification software, Australia's eSafety Commissioner, Julie Inman Grant, said that her office would be looking at the outcomes of the UK policy very closely, so there may be more countries following the UK’s lead.
In addition to Australia, with the passing of FOSTA, the United States may move towards a stricter policy on age verification. Businesses are doing their research now and preparing for the possibility of age verification being a requirement for them (or simply beneficial to have). Many websites may be affected by additional changes to age verification laws that could be coming to your country.
Many businesses are already taking action on their own accord to implement age verification policies and the cheapest and most efficient fashion. Using the best technology around, and with services available free of charge, AVSecure is here to help provide the tools you need for successful age verification.
