Virginia Age Verification Law

The Virginia Age Verification law, also known as SB 1515, requires that adult websites must verify users’ age and identity but can choose the specific method of verification. For example, they can ask users to upload photos of government-issued IDs or use other technologies like biometric checks. This law also allows users to sue pornographic websites that fail to use proper age and identity verification methods for any damages resulting from a minor’s access to age-restricted content. 

Legislators in Virginia passed a bill requiring adult websites to use more stringent age verification protocols in order to prevent minors from seeing them. That means sites providing age-restricted content must confirm users in Virginia are at least 18 years old before allowing them to view the content, according to a rule that went into effect on July 1, 2023.
