Americans React As Lawmakers Implement Age Restrictions Against Pornhub, Blocking Over 18 Million Customers

More than 18 million people in five states will soon join Pornhub’s growing list of banned users as new age restriction laws take effect.

States Losing Access

Kentucky lost access on June 10, while Indiana, Idaho, and Kansas will be blocked on June 28, and Nebraska will follow on July 17.

Age Verification Requirements

The new laws mandate that visitors to certain websites, including social media platforms, must show proof of age by uploading a government-issued ID.

Pornhub’s Concerns About Privacy

Pornhub has emphasized that while safety and compliance are priorities, they believe age verification jeopardizes user privacy.

Risks of Age Verification

Pornhub argues that requiring users to submit sensitive information for age verification increases the risk of data breaches and exploitation by criminals.

Total Number of Blocked States

With the addition of these states, the total number of states where Pornhub is blocked reaches twelve, including Texas, North Carolina, Montana, Mississippi, Virginia, Arkansas, and Utah.

Notification to Users

Users in the soon-to-be-banned states are being notified with countdowns and messages explaining the impending loss of access.

Aylo’s Stance on Age Verification

Aylo, Pornhub’s parent company, supports age verification in principle but criticizes the implementation as ineffective and dangerous.

Previous Blocks and Legal Battles

Texas was blocked in March after an appeals court upheld an age verification law. Lawsuits and legal challenges continue in various states, questioning the balance between protecting minors and infringing on free speech and privacy.

Concerns from Civil Liberty Organizations

Organizations like the Electronic Frontier Foundation warn that these laws could lead to impersonation schemes and data theft, highlighting significant risks despite retention and disclosure limits.

Opposition to Age Verification Laws

Opponents argue that these laws infringe on free speech and threaten digital privacy. They believe such measures are unconstitutional and violate established legal precedents.
