Instagram Is Looking At Age Verifying Technology

Instagram is thinking about using face scanning AI to verify if someone is 18.

Its testing new ways to get age verification, and uploading an ID or having a mutual friend verify are two other ways being checked out.

The problem is, Meta has a bad track record of protecting user information, so will anyone approve? The company says the face scanner only recognizes age, not who the person is and once the age is verified the image gets deleted.

When a child is marked as under 18, they have to prove age when changing it to 18 or over.
