YouTube tightens its requirements if you want porn videos on its site

Not so long ago, YouTube tightened its child protection policies in various ways, and we had to reconfirm our age in order to watch videos rated as explicit. However, its new measures to prevent minor users from accessing videos with suggestive, violent or offensive content are getting stricter.

Now age verification is required, which is nothing more and nothing less than a photo of your identity documents or your credit card details. We will tell you what are the new YouTube protection measures for minors!

When you enter a video that has been flagged as explicit by YouTube, a popup will appear asking you to verify your age in order to access the video. You will have to click on Verify.

Then you will have to choose the option you want to verify your age: with your bank card details or a copy of your identity documents (DNI, NIE…). If you choose to enter your credit card you will have to fill in the required information and click OK.

If you choose to submit a photo of your ID there will be approximately 3 days for your application to be reviewed and approved. Now you can watch the videos you want!

Moreover, it is very difficult to bypass these new security measures, as YouTube forces the user to redirect to their official site if they try to watch a “blocked” video from a third-party site.
