Instagram age verification test now applicable to 6 more countries!
Meta has announced that it is set to expand its ‘age verification test’ for Instagram users to six more countries- in Europe, Mexico, Canada, South Korea, Australia and Japan. The social media player said that they are working on making age verification tools expand in more countries across the world globally within the upcoming few months.
Also, Instagram will remove Social Vouching as an option to verify age from the test to make some improvements. Meta stated that if some user will attempt to edit their date of birth (DOB) on Instagram from under the age of 18 to 18 or above, then the platform will require the user to verify their age by using one of three options:
Upload their ID
Record a video selfie
Ask mutual friends to verify their age
The company has been testing the new verification tool to make sure that teens and adults are in the right experience for their age group.
