Instagram tests new age verification tools for 18 and over accounts, including video selfies

Instagram has been tinkering for years looking for better ways to manage and engage with younger and older users — not just to be more compliant with regulations, but to better target age-appropriate and relevant content and advertising to them. In the latest move, the Meta-owned platform is testing a new set of features — video selfies, vouching from adult friends, and providing an ID — designed to verify when people say they are 18 and older.
The test covers U.S. users, who will now potentially see these options if they try to change their age from under 18 to 18 and over.
