Among the age verification methods introduced on Instagram is the possibility of sending a video in 'selfie' format and, through the technology provided by aYoti, the face is recognised and the system will be able to understand whether or not the user is older than the age.
There is also a second method that will ask users to ask three people on the social network (over 18) to confirm that the user is of legal age. Finally, there is the possibility of presenting an identification document, such as a citizen's card or driving license.
Instagram rules state that users must be at least 13 years old to use the social network.
