The long awaited age verification system in Second Life is currently being tested. I am greatly against this privacy outrage and the fact that Linden Labs will be storing even more information about you on their servers. Age verification is supposidly voluntary. But you will be limited to where you can go if you do not do it. This is just one step away from real life identity verification. Supposidly the information isn’t stored (but it says unless required by law).
So here are the documents you can use to verify your age:
1. Your passport
2. Your Driver’s license
3. Your National ID Number
4. Your Social Security Number
That is correct. You will be entering this sensative identity theft ready information into Second Life!
I also do not like that Linden Labs is outsourcing the identity verification and transmitting your information back and forth.
And get this! The age verification is TEMPORARILY free! LOL. They will start charging for this eventually!
