UK Age Verification Requirement

Ensure You're Ready with 18+

Free Age Verification Gateways to Comply with UK Law

At some point in the future, all adult websites accessible from the U.K. must ensure that only persons 18+ can access adult content.

18+ Age Gateway is simple to integrate and FREE to use.

The fastest and most private age verification gateway with zero tracking.

How it Works

When activated, the 18+ Age Gateway intercepts traffic to your website from UK IP addresses and presents UK visitors with an age verification requirement.

The visitor either will verify his or her age to obtain an 18+ Age Credential or use an 18+ Age Credential previously stored in the 18+ App. For visitors who have not yet stored an 18+ Age Credential, they can obtain one by verifying their age through their mobile phone carrier, using a credit card issued by a UK bank, or with a UK or foreign issued driving license or passport.

The 18+ App allows for easy storage of an 18+ Age Credential and access to all 18+ Age Gateways. Visitors with the 18+ App simply click the 18+ logo or scan a QR code to consent to sharing their 18+ Age Credential with your website. Upon consenting, the 18+ Age Gateway automatically opens. Upon successful verification, the 18+ Age Gateway will will set a short-lived cookie from your website in order to prevent the Age Gateway from triggering again during the visitor's session.

We've designed the 18+ Age Gateway and 18+ App to be fast, easy, and as unobtrusive as possible. Most importantly, it provides the most private age verification experience available with zero trace of the websites visited.
