The U.K. Is Planning a “Porn Block.” Here’s What That Actually Means6

By April, it’s going to get a whole lot harder to watch porn in the UK (sorry, pun NOT intended).

According to multiple reports, the U.K. government is going to put in place a so-called “porn block” by either the start of April or Easter (April 21) this year. (It might also take longer. Stuart Lawley, CEO of blockchain age-verification company AV Secure says U.K. regulators “promised they’d give the industry 90 days notice,” before implementation, and that hasn’t happened yet. “I’d be amazed if it happens before the end of June,” Lawley says.) Regardless of when it happens, the block will require every would-be porn viewer in the U.K. to provide their personal identification to verify that they’re over 18—the age at which it becomes officially suitable to watch porn in the Queen’s country.
