Age verification for pornography sites

Porn viewing histories for 20m? What could possibly go wrong?

The DE Act compels pornography websites to verify the age of their users. This is to try and prevent children and young people from seeing pornography. We have concerns about how this will be implemented. We believe there could be implications for the privacy of many adults, who could be put at risk of Ashley Madison style hacks. We also have questions about the extent to which the proposals will actually prevent young people from seeing pornography.
