Instagram introduces new process to crack down on underage users
The majority of social media platforms have an age limit of 13 years old, but how is this really being regulated?
Instagram is exploring new ways for teenagers to verify their age and comply with platform rules.
The gram is turning to video selfies to crack down on minors editing their date of birth to make them appear over 18.
The Meta-owned app is testing video selfies with facial analysis software as a new age-verification method.
For a U.S. teen who wants to join insta, they will need to upload ID, ask three adult users to vouch for them or take a video selfie.
Meta says it hopes the new methods will ensure teens have an “age-appropriate experience” on the content sharing app.
Video selfies have become a popular way for digital platforms – such as online banking apps – to verify users’ age or identity.

Samsung penalised for misleading Galaxy phone users
Samsung Electronics Australia will pay $14 million after admitting that it misled customers about its phone’s waterproof capabilities
The false or misleading claims were made about the water resistance of several phones, including the S7, S7 Edge, and Note 8 Samsung Galaxy phones.
It’s understood there were more than 3.1 million of these Galaxy phones sold in Australia.
The company says if the phones were submerged in pool or sea water there was chance of the charging port being corroded and stop working if the phone was charged while still wet.
“The phones would display a warning message to discourage consumers from attempting to charge the phones while water was in the charging port,” the company said.
Australia’s consumer watchdog says they reviewed hundreds of complaints from customers who experienced issues with their Galaxy phones.
“The case only relates to a prospect of corrosion of the charging port (if charged while pool or
sea water remained in the charging port), and only following submersion in pool or sea
water. It does not relate to water resistance generally,” the company explained.
Affected customers are urged to contact Samsung.
