End: Tuesday 24 October 2023 15:00

Venue: Online (Microsoft Teams)

Join us on Tuesday 24 October from 14:00 (BST) to hear how the mobile industry can help address the growing digital age assurance requirements.

The increasing demand for age verification and assurance solutions is mainly driven by the need to protect young people from online harm. Regulation is progressing rapidly worldwide. Businesses across varied verticals are becoming increasingly aware of their age assurance requirements. Stakeholders strive to strike a balance between the need to protect users from harm whilst respecting their privacy and offering universal access; without adding unnecessary friction in user journeys.

In this context, the mobile industry may help users in accessing digital services in a secure, easy and private manner. Through mobile identity APIs, mobile intelligence can support real-time seamless age verification of adults.

In this session, our speakers will discuss the landscape of age assurance before diving into innovative mobile industry solutions.
