At present, the new feature has not been rolled out to everyone, but its testing has been started. Instagram is doing this verification to give experience to its users according to their age.

Have to record video of your face

Apart from giving ID in the Instagram app, users will get the option to verify age with the help of other friends, or they will be able to do so by recording a video selfie.

Meta has partnered with Yoti to give users new options related to age verification .

Let us tell you, Yoti is specialized in providing such methods related to age verification of the company, in which there is no risk to the privacy.

Testing has been started in America

The new method is being tested by the popular app with users in the US.

If a user tries to set his or her date of birth on Instagram to be less than or equal to 18 years, they are given three options for age verification.

These options include uploading an official ID, recording a video selfie and asking mutual friends to verify the age. Let me tell you, before this Instagram has made it mandatory to tell the date of birth.

More than a billion people worldwide use the Instagram app and users spend an average of 53 minutes a day on the app. On average, more than 10 hashtags are used in every post shared on the platform.

Video selfie will be like this verification

If users choose to upload a video selfie for age verification, they will be shown on-screen instructions.

This video selfie will share the Instagram image with Yoti, after which Yoti’s system will detect the age according to the face and Instagram will be told the probable age.

Eventually both Meta and Yoti will delete these images and this technology will only be used for age determination.
