What is an Age Check Widget?

The Age Check widget is a powerful tool for online business owners who want to ensure that their website is only accessed by individuals of a certain age. This widget allows you to verify the maturity level of your visitors and forbids minors from entering shock sites, adult entertainment, or any other sites that are classified as inappropriate, violent, or offensive.

In today's digital age, it is more important than ever to protect minors from exposure to inappropriate content. With the Age Check widget, you can rest assured that your website is only being accessed by individuals who are of legal age to view your content.

How Does Age Check Widget Work?

The Age Check widget is easy to install and use. Simply add the code to your website and customize the settings to fit your needs. You can choose to verify the age of your visitors through a simple checkbox, a birthdate entry form, or even by connecting to a third-party age verification service.

Once the widget is set up, any visitor who attempts to access your website will be prompted to verify their age. If they are under the specified age limit, they will be redirected to a different page or denied access altogether.

Why Use Age Check?

Age Check offers customizable options for businesses to tailor the age verification process to their specific needs. This can include setting a minimum age requirement, choosing the type of verification method (such as date of birth or ID scan), and customizing the appearance of the age verification prompt.

Overall, using Age Check can provide peace of mind for both businesses and customers when it comes to age-restricted products or services. By implementing this widget, businesses can ensure compliance, protect against liability, and enhance the customer experience.
