Social media connects us with friends around the world, allowing us to interact and share information, making our digital lives more vibrant. But let's not forget, it also brings its own set of privacy challenges, posing potential risks to both our personal information and overall security. So, what can we do to keep our online lives both fun and secure?

R Digital offers a solution to address these issues. In this blog, we look at the role of identity and age verification on social media, as well as how AesirX Shield of Privacy can provide significant benefits to users and online service providers.

1. Why Is Identity and Age Verification on Social Media Necessary?

Adolescent and Child Protection

Children frequently lack the ability to accurately assess the risks of online activities, and their exposure to inappropriate content (violence, sexual content, substance abuse, offensive language, and so on) can be dangerous if they imitate such behavior. By verifying identity and age on social media, children are prevented from easily accessing age-inappropriate content, protecting them from online threats. 

Online Safety

The risks of online scams, cyberbullying, and fraudulent activities on social media are rising. Identity and age verification contributes to the creation of a secure online environment in which people can interact with confidence, knowing that they are interacting with genuine, verified individuals. This reduces the prevalence of fake accounts and inappropriate behavior.

Reducing Spam and Inappropriate Content

Identity verification can reduce the presence of spam accounts and inappropriate content on social media, improving user experiences by reducing unwanted and harmful information. 

Personal Privacy Protection

Identity and age verification systems that use zero-knowledge proof technology (a method that allows checking the accuracy of information without revealing the data itself) prevent unauthorized use of users' personal information and protect user privacy from data misuse.

AesirX Shield of Privacy

AesirX Shield of Privacy is a decentralized identity management solution that allows users to control their personal information by providing only the information required for verification.

Suppose you want to buy alcohol from an online store. Instead of giving them your full name, date of birth, address, and credit card number, you can use AesirX Shield of Privacy to generate a verifiable credential that proves you are over 21 years old. The online store can verify this credential using the blockchain, without knowing any other details about you. 

Therefore, users can manage and freely control their own information, which helps to protect their privacy and create a safe online environment.
