Porn sites in the U.S. state of Louisiana must verify the age of users or be held liable for content that may “harm minors” Pornhub, for example, has implemented age verification through an electronic driver’s license verification service.

The major porn sites have already taken advantage of this.

Authorities in the U.S. state of Louisiana have imposed additional restrictions on pornographic websites. Starting January 1, 2023, the site must either verify the age of users or be held liable for content that may “harm minors”.

According to Vice, the user’s age verification is not limited to clicking the “I am 18 years old” button. Pornhub, for example, has implemented age verification through an electronic driver’s license verification service.

Similarly, we found in Gizmodo, other porn sites have been compromised. If they wish, they can check the age of users themselves: the law allows porn sites to require physical documentation.

At the same time, the law prohibits the retention of “identifying information” of a user after verifying his age. This is supposed to avoid de-anonymizing porn site users.

A similar law, the publication reminds, has been in force in France since 2020. In the UK, the issue of age verification for pornography sites was discussed for quite some time, but the idea was eventually abandoned.
