Today, we’re announcing a continuation of these efforts to live up to our regulatory obligations around the world and to provide age-appropriate experiences when people come to YouTube.

The definition of mature content will be so blurry that they’ll use it to further restrict political discussion so anything deemed misinformation (which changes monthly) by the establishment will disappear under the guise of protecting the children.

100% agree. Whenever a broker like Google slots themselves in social relations, they almost always gain power to change social reality by being dishonest translators. I am worried by how much everyday banal activities are mediated by centralized IDs. Paying for a cup of coffee using your phone? Papers, Please. Opening your house with that shiny iPhone, ID, please. We have increased instances where we need an ID while also reducing ID options to the surveillance monopolies.

Yup the digital dark age is becoming an abyss, hopefully the continued fall of the US doesn’t take us all down… And on that cheery note :)

In line with upcoming regulations, like the European Union’s Audiovisual Media Services Directive (AVMSD), we will also be introducing a new age verification step over the next few months. As part of this process some European users may be asked to provide additional proof of age when attempting to watch mature content. If our systems are unable to establish that a viewer is above the age of 18, we will request that they provide a valid ID or credit card to verify their age.

A space to share and discuss information on identification practices. Articles shared here are not necessarily an endorsement of the many forms of identification (in fact it is mostly the opposite). They are shared here to bring them to the attention of individuals interested in IDs.
