Adult Verification System – AVS

Adult Verification System – AVS

Adult Verification System – AVS, knwon also as Age Gate is a computing system used by a website to confirm that the user attempting to access their website is of the age required (usually by law) to view the website’s content, which typically includes sex, nudity, violence or profanity, Age-Restricted YouTube channels or videos, or ESRB rated content for M-rated and AO-rated video games, or Alcoholic beverages and Tobacco. Adult Verification Systems often use a credit card, and are usually provided by a third-party company; the same AVS company can provide Age Gate for multiple websites, thus becoming more user friendly.
