About Age Verification

A privacy-first approach to age verification

You don’t need to know someone’s name to know they’re the right age – you often don’t even need their date of birth. We’ve built a range of tools that let users prove they’re the right age for your service without sharing any personal information – because it’s good for everybody.

AGE ASSURANCE TOOLS

Offer your customers six ways to prove their age

We use a combination of AI technology, liveness anti-spoofing and document authenticity checks so you can be confident in the age of your customers.

 Based on facial analysis

Facial age estimation

Users simply look at the camera on a device and have their photo taken.

Our algorithm instantly estimates their age based on their face, certified for use in a Challenge 25 policy area.

Reusable digital ID

Yoti app

Users scan a QR code using their Yoti app and share a verified “Over” attribute.

Users add an ID document to the app, which we verify is real using automated and manual processes.

One-time document verification

ID document

Users scan their ID document and take a biometric selfie using the camera on their device.

We match the user to their ID document using automated and manual processes.

 Credit card check

We verify if your customer is over 18 using their credit card details.

 Mobile provider check

We verify your customer is over 18 using their mobile provider details.

Database check

We verify your customer’s name, date of birth and address against a database.

PRIVACY BY DESIGN

Check age without processing customer data

Simply tell us your age requirements and we’ll send you the result of the age check, with some non-identifiable information for your audit requirements. We don’t share or store any personal data, protecting the privacy of your users and your brand against data leaks. 

GLOBAL SCALE

Take your service global

Set your age requirements by country and show different age methods depending on where your users are in the world. This way, you can keep regulators and users happy whilst delivering the best pass rates for different markets.

Languages: 🇬🇧 English,  🇩🇪 German,  🇫🇷 French,  🇪🇸 Spanish,    🇮🇹 Italian, 🇧🇷 Portuguese, 🇨🇳 Chinese and more.

TOKENISED AGE

Tap into an ecosystem of reusable age tokens

Age tokens let users continue to access your site without having to prove their age again, meaning less user friction and lower costs. Tokens don’t contain any personal details, just the result of an age check and information around when and how it was performed.

If you’re curious about how tokens work and how they’re secured, read more on our developer documentation.
