Age ID checks to be put in place online in the UK so kids cannot access p*rn

Postby Community Editor » Tue Mar 12, 2019 10:08 am

P*rn will no longer be accessible online from next month unless you can prove you are over 18 years old.

A 'p*rn block' will automatically restrict access to any X-rated websites on all internet providers, banning all users from accessing it so easily.

The ban will be coming into the place as early as April, introduced under new laws.

Users are going to be automatically blocked from sites such as P*rnHub and YouP*rn in a bid to stop children seeing explicit and inappropriate content.

The company behind both these sites have now developed a site called AgeID, so anyone who tries to access one of the p*rn sites will be directed to this.

You will then be asked to provide your date of birth, and information off your passport, driving licence or credit card, and if you pass the verification you will be given a log in.

This new policy was launched after the NSPCC claimed more than half of teenagers are "stumbling across" p*rn when on Google.

What do you think of this?

Seems dubious giving personal information such as passport details or driving licence to a third party

Surely everyone will just use VPN instead to bypass the checks

Kids will still see p0rnographic images via other sites like Instagram
