A new law will ban people in the U.K. from accessing online porn without first verifying their age.

The U.K government confirmed Wednesday that Britain will become the first country in the world to introduce age-verification for online pornography, with measures coming into force on July 15 this year.

From that date, internet providers of pornography will have to check that users are at least 18-years-old.

It’s part of the Digital Economy Act 2017, and is ostensibly aimed at preventing children from accidentally finding extreme porn online.

In a release Wednesday, the U.K. Minister for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, Margot James, said privacy concerns had been balanced fairly against protecting children from early-age exposure to sexual imagery.

“We want the U.K. to be the safest place in the world to be online, and these new laws will help us achieve this.”

From April, when the new system is expected to launch, randy internet lurkers will be shown a non-pornographic “landing page”, according to AgeID spokesman James Clark.

When someone first clicks on a site, they’ll be asked to register with AgeID and verify their age using a Mobile SMS, credit card, passport, or driving licence.

Users will then be able to use their AgeID username or password to access all porn sites that use AgeID – though some may use different age verification systems.

What about data breaches and your porn-history leaks?

The BBFC says U.K. visitors to porn sites will be allowed a variety of options to prove their age and that verification providers will be rigorously assessed over how they protect user data.

But others are less convinced by U.K. government’s promises. In a statement Wednesday, Executive Director of Open Rights Group, Jim Killock, said authorities must ensure a compulsory privacy scheme.

“Having some age verification that is good and other systems that are bad is unfair and a scammer’s paradise — of the government’s own making.”

“Data leaks could be disastrous. And they will be the government’s own fault,” Killock added.
