UK porn block : "Government plan to stop children watching adult online videos".


The government has announced that controversial plans for a "porn block" to stop children watching adult content online have been announced.The long-delayed measure - first promised in 2015 and the first due to come into force last year - "will not be initiated" after being in trouble and repeatedly delayed.

The government's commitment to online safety of children is unbreakable, ”Nicky Morgan, Digital Secretary, revealed the climb in a statement.This policy would require all adult Internet users to view legal pornography to prove that they are over 18 years of age.

Websites that refused to implement checks being blocked by UK Internet service providers or withdrew their access to payment services. However, this idea - the first of its kind in any democratic country - ran into legal, practical and technical difficulties. Privacy campaigners protested that - despite the reassessment of age-verification sites - it would be possible to link a person's browsing habits to their identity, which then could have been leaked.
