The Future of Privacy Forum (FPF) has released a new infographic examining the risks and potential harms associated with trying to determine someone's age online. The analysis outlines the three categories of age assurance, including age declaration, age estimation, and age verification, each with its own level of privacy and accuracy tradeoffs. FPF recommends choosing a layered approach that is proportional to the risks of each specific use case. Policymakers, regulators, service providers, and others can use this analysis as a helpful guide when evaluating options and potential solutions.
