The group admits that age verification may require “collection of new personal data such as facial imagery or government-issued ID.”

Governments and global organizations may have arrived at the winning formula for making Big Tech play along threaten them with the stick of huge money fines and dangle some carrot they like best in front of them at the same time.

And that latter could just be – giving access to even more personal data tech juggernauts are allowed to harvest and exploit. Harmful as it may be to everybody else in the world that is absolutely key to their business models, massive bottom lines, and the power arising from it all.

Now, we’re hearing that a Big Tech group called Digital Trust & Safety Partnership (DTSP) has come out in support of age verification in its response to the UN’s wide-ranging Global Digital Compact.
