  • UK Orders Porn Websites To Introduce Age Checks From Year Or Be Banned

People in the United Kingdom will have to prove they are 18 before being allowed to access pornography websites from next year, the government is to announce.

Sites that refuse to cooperate face the wrath of earmarked regulator the British Board of Film Classifications.

To step up the age verification process for pornography websites, the United Kingdom government may ask website owners to verify a user's age through a credit card verification as such cards are only provided to people who are 18 and above.

The digital minister, Matt Hancock, who will introduce the bill in the House of Commons on Monday, said: "Now we are taking the next step to put in place the legal requirement for websites with adult content to ensure it is safely behind an age verification control".

The Government also plans to appoint a regulator to police sex websites.

It's now unclear how the new laws will be policed but websites that don't apply the age-restriction measures could face large fines and the threat of being blocked from the UK.

Pornograhy websites are to be ordered to install age-verification software to ensure users are not under 18.

"All this means that while we can enjoy the freedom of the web, the United Kingdom have the most robust internet child protection measures of any country in the world". One study released in 2016 claimed that online porn had been watched by 65% of 15 to 16-year-olds and 48% of 11 to 16-year-olds in the UK. Failure to do so could result in a bar on credit card payments from the United Kingdom or a block from being carried by United Kingdom internet service providers.

"The NSPCC is calling for social networks to be required by law to give under-18s safe accounts with extra protections built in, so that children are kept as safe online as they are in the real world".

In the wake of the fresh news, Will Gardner, chief executive of the internet safety group Childnet, said: "Protecting children from exposure, including accidental exposure, to adult content is incredibly important, given the effect it can have on young people".

"The Government has repeatedly refused to ensure that there is a legal duty for age verification providers to protect the privacy of web users". It found that 28% had accidentally encountered porn online while browsing, while 19% has purposefully looked for it. "Age verification could lead to porn companies building databases of the UK's porn habits, which could be vulnerable to Ashley Madison style hacks".
