Meta Begins Rolling Out Age Verification Tools for Facebook Dating in the US

They were introduced for Instagram in June

Join TV, media, marketing and tech leaders for Adweek Convergent TV, Mar. 21–22. Virtual and in-person passes available. 50% off through Feb. 6.


Three options were introduced for U.S. Instagrammers in June to verify that they were old enough to use the platform: uploading accepted forms of identification, such as a driver’s license or other form of identification card; uploading a video selfie; and a social vouching option that enabled users to ask mutual followers to confirm their age.

The initiative was extended to more countries in October, and the social vouching option was discontinued.
