The solution.

Create a child safe environment by protecting children from 'contact' risks – e.g. exposure to unsolicited contact – from adults attempting to use platforms and online spaces designed for kids.

  1. Age declaration.

    Combining age declaration with facial biometrics to verify the user’s declared age is accurate.

  2. Age estimation.

    Using facial biometrics to estimate a users age, our technology detects liveness to confirm the user is a live person in front of the camera. Their age is then estimated using multiple AI partners via a configurable decision matrix to meet the required level of confidence and assurance.

How it works.

...

The user submits their date of birth prior to entering a child specific space.

...

Using a phone camera or webcam they submit a short video selfie.

...

The age estimation result is compared to their previously declared age.
