Trulioo awarded certification for age verification services

Global identity verification company Trulioo has received approval from German Media Authorities to provide age verification services in telemedia.

After a robust assessment, the Kommission für Jugendmedienschutz (KJM) or the Commission for the Protection of Minors in the Media, concluded that Trulioo’s identity verification solution complies with both the legal and technical requirements of the Interstate Treaty on the Protection of Minors in the Media (JMStV).

Trulioo’s platform provides real-time verification of 5 billion consumers and 330 million business entities worldwide through a single API integration.

Media providers and businesses have flexibility in setting minimum age parameters on Trulioo’s platform, ensuring age-appropriate visitors can access content while minors are kept out. The identity data provided by the visitor is checked against independent databases to see if the information positively matches.

By enforcing age verification checks, it becomes difficult for youth and children to access age-restricted content in telemedia, Trulioo said.

Steve Munford, Trulioo CEO, added, “Trulioo’s age verification solution provides a straightforward and seamless user experience for age-appropriate users while ensuring minors don’t engage in potentially harmful content.

“By turning to Trulioo’s solutions, media providers and businesses can perform age checks that adhere to compliance measures while upholding a privacy-centric approach in handling this sensitive data.”
