Introduced last year by the UK government, the Digital Economy Act 2017 states a person (website) will contravene the law if it “makes pornographic material available on the internet to persons in the United Kingdom on a commercial basis other than in a way that secures that, at any given time, the material is not normally accessible by persons under the age of 18”.
To help websites comply with this Act, we developed AgeID, a simple, fast and secure age verification system. AgeID has a solid background in protecting age-restricted websites, and has been live in Germany for 3 years complying with the age verification rules of the German Media Authority.
AgeID is free for the user and very affordable for the website owner, providing a seamless experience for both sides. Our system does not store any personal age verification data, so you can rest assured that your data will not be exposed.
AgeID provides users with a wide range of verification options, ensuring all adults are able to verify their age. We also use multiple age verification providers with backup options to ensure a high quality of service. Our single sign-on solution means users can verify once, then simply login to any one of the thousands of sites protected by AgeID on launch, without the hassle of re-verifying every time.
