IDnow check approved by German regulator for age verification

The KJM confirmed that IDCheck.io aligns with the youth protection treaty in Germany. This accolade adds IDCheck.io to the roster of IDnow solutions – including VideoIdent, AutoIdent, IDnow eID and the IDnow Wallet – that have been approved by the KJM for age verification. 

The significance of this approval lies in the solution's compliance with the German Interstate Treaty on the Protection of Minors in the Media. This treaty mandates that certain content – such as explicit video games, gambling offers or adult-oriented materials – can only be distributed online if providers implement effective age verification systems.

Rayissa Armata, Director of Global Regulatory & Government Affairs at IDnow, stated: “There are corners of the internet that contain content best unseen by child or adolescent eyes.

"However, curious young minds will often go searching for these,Table games so there needs to be a method of gatekeeping on these websites that goes beyond asking a user to simply click a button to confirm or deny their adult status, which is what the KJM stands for in Germany. 

“With IDCheck.io, IDnow is pleased to offer yet another solution for online age verification, which has been rated positively by the KJM. With our broad range of identity verification methods, IDnow remains a strong partner for the protection of minors, especially in the gaming and gambling space.“
