Age Verification

Put Age Checks on Autopilot

Implement a tech-first age verification system and provide convenient access to age-restricted products and services within your compliance policy.

Failing to deter minors from accessing your service or buying your products may result in six-figure fines and reputational damage. Yet, enabling age verification has its pitfalls. First, people typically hate anything that prevents them from getting what they want fast. No wonder that adding a “Confirm your age” step often results in lower conversions. Second, relying on users confirming that they are over 18, 21, or any other age, doesn’t count as due diligence.

To address these challenges, Regula has come up with advanced identity verification tools. When implemented, they let you automatically verify customers’ age and provide a seamless experience, both online and onsite.

How Regula Enhances Age Verification Processes

Meet compliance obligations

Make sure your customers are age-appropriate in a snap. With its proprietary database of over 12,000 document templates, Regula instantly identifies the submitted document type and correctly pulls the customer's date of birth.

Protect your brand reputation

Verify document authenticity with confidence to eliminate verification bypassing attempts and age fraud. Regula uses AI algorithms to analyze a submitted document and detect any mismatches in data from the visual zone, MRZ, RFID chips, barcodes, and holograms.

Confirm document ownership

Prevent underage access to your products and services by conducting biometric verification and face matching to confirm the document actually belongs to the customer who submits it.

Enhance user experience

You won’t need to ask your customers’ age, as age verification happens automatically when identity documents are submitted. Provide quick and smooth onboarding without sacrificing security.

Scan, Verify, Stay Compliant

With Regula SDKs, you can build a fully customized age verification workflow that serves your business needs best. Make sure your business is on the right side of regulators without sacrificing user experience.

Permission.io. Charles Silver, CEO

Digital Advertising is ripe for a change. Big tech exploits user data, and click fraud is estimated to grow into an $87 billion business in 2021. The major platforms grade their own homework, so to speak, and advertisers are getting the short end of the stick. Too often, the ads they pay to deliver are not even being seen. Permission is bringing the change this industry needs by respecting user data and by delivering to advertisers superior targeting and better ROI on their considerable spend.
