UK Porn Rules Requiring Age Verification From April 1st

UK Porn Rules Requiring Age Verification From April 1st

Watching online pornography could be about to get more difficult very soon for people living in the UK. New rules that could come into effect as soon as April 1st will require anyone wishing to access a free adult site to provide proof of identity.

Whilst that might sound annoying – if you’re into that sort of thing to begin with, anyway – the rules are aimed at protecting children.

The rules, once they are brought into place, will cover many of the world’s largest pornography sites such as YouPorn and PornHub. Those two sites alone see nearly 2 billion people visit every month from around the globe.

Alongside those websites, a whole host of others will require anyone wishing to access free content of an adult nature to sign up to a new system called AgeID.

That means that you’ll have to register yourself using details from a valid form of ID such as a driving licence, credit card, or passport.

Basically, as soon as you log on, you’ll be met with a non-pornographic landing page upon which you’ll be prompted to verify your age.

This is according to a spokesperson for the company providing the verification software.

AgeID spokesperson James Clark told The Metro: “When a user first visits a site protected by AgeID, a landing page will appear with a prompt for the user to verify their age before they can access the site,

“Each website will create their own non-pornographic landing page for this purpose.”

Despite this seeming like a bit of a hassle, once you’re registered on one site, you’ll be able to use the same verification for any other sites that subscribe to the AgeID system.

However, the decision on which age verification system to use is up to each individual site and some will have different providers.
