Go.cam: An Innovation to Improve Your Cybersecurity and Age Detection



Do you own an adult website? Or does your website talk about violence? If yes, it’s extremely important that your site presents content only after verifying the age of the visitor. You cannot allow individuals under the age of 18 years to get access to such explicit content. The advent of Go.cam has made the job of preventing underage visitors from accessing certain websites much easier.



With Go.cam, age verification secure and anonymous blocking will be a cakewalk for you. Read on to know more about the application.

The Working Procedure of Go.cam

Go.cam is a highly intelligent application. It uses the camera of the computer or smartphone to assess the actual age of the visitor. Whether or not the visitor will be allowed to browse the website in question depends entirely on the result of Go.cam’s assessment. The application works by using artificial intelligence and thus completes its job promptly and accurately.

If Go.cam finds that the visitor has completed 18 years, he or she will be allowed to enter the website and browse through it freely. On the other hand, if the result of the assessment reveals that the visitor is close to 18 years or less than that, he/she will need to undergo a second process of verification.

Individuals failing to pass the first verification process will need to capture the image of their ID (passport, driver’s license, etc.) using their phone’s camera or webcam. The ID proof one must use for this purpose should include his/her date of birth and photo. If the date of birth proves that the owner of the ID proof is above the age of 18 years, the person will be allowed to browse through the website without any further obstruction.

Is the Application Safe?

Go.cam will ensure that visitors coming to your website don’t become victims of data leaks and hacking just because they have shared age proofs with you.

Go.cam neither stores the documents or info shared by users nor transmits them to any third party. The moment the verification process is over, the stored data is erased automatically from the computer or phone memory.

Go.cam never installs any tracking cookie on the users’ device, let it be a smartphone or a computer. This might surprise you as at present almost every company operating online leaves no stone unturned to collect the personal data of users. What’s worse is that they use that info for marketing their products and/or services.

The service is already in use in Europe. An adult entertainment company named XloveCam uses it to stop underage individuals from accessing explicit content available on their website. According to experts, US websites offering similar content have also started to use the application to ensure that their content reaches people of the right age group.

Final Words

One of the highlights of Go.cam is that it’s extremely user-friendly. Despite using artificial intelligence of the highest level, it doesn’t require users to have technological brilliance for using it effectively. So, if you want to stop individuals below a certain age group from entering your site, start using the application right away.
