Age Verification on Fansly


Why the Change?

Recently, the U.S. has seen a rise in state-level legislation mandating age verification on platforms hosting adult content - including Fansly. The following states have already passed legislation regarding age verification:

Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Montana, North Carolina, Texas, Utah, Virginia


Multiple other states have signed laws that come into effect in the near future, including:

Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma


Why we have to comply

Implementing age verification is essential not only for compliance with the law but also for ensuring the safety of users. It's paramount that these verifications are done in a way that also preserves user privacy. For instance, the new laws could potentially drive users towards platforms that don't enforce safety or privacy standards, thereby increasing the risk of exposure to harmful or illegal content.


What's changing and who is affected

If you are from one of the above states, you may be prompted to verify your age. You can complete the verification on your Privacy & Safety page. Age verification is completed by our industry-leading KYC partner, Ondato
