Britain set to introduce porn ID checks: report

The United Kingdom will introduce age checks for those who want to access pornography on the Internet from next year.

The BBC reported that adult websites would be required to install age verification checks by April 2018. Only those who are 18 would be allowed access.

The move is apparently part of the measures to make the Web safer and companies that do not comply may be blocked by their service providers.

Users may be asked to provide credit card details, as they are asked to do by gambling websites.

The rule is one of many set out in the country's Digital Economy Act and will be overseen by a regulatory body.

Britain's Digital Minister Matt Hancock will begin the process with a written statement to the House of Commons.

The BBC report said that the regulatory body could be the British Board of Film Certification that sets age limits for films.

The Board also used to rate computer games, but that is now done by Pan European Game Information.
