This time Instagram will check the age

Instagram is very popular with teenagers because of the easy exchange of photos and videos. For this reason, the list of growing Instagram users has always been dominated by teenagers. According to the social media policy of exchanging photos and videos, the minimum age for opening an account is 13 years. But many people under the age of 13 open accounts on Instagram through fake birth dates. Not only that, they also identify themselves as adults.Instagram has decided to collect video selfies from teenagers to find out their real age. The age of the users will be verified by reviewing the video selfie collected under the new initiative through face analysis software. This will give you an idea of ​​the actual age of the teenager. At present the effectiveness of this new method is being tested.

Under this new initiative, the age of teenagers will be checked. The video selfies will be deleted after age verification, said Meta, the parent company of Instagram.

Instagram authorities are currently collecting video selfies from users to forget their passwords or recover accounts.Last March, Instagram authorities launched a new tool for parents to control teenagers’ use of Instagram. Using the tool, parents can find out how long their child has been using Instagram. If they want, they can also set a time for the child to use Instagram.
