Porn Viewers Could Be Added to National Data-Base (UK)

Porn Viewers Could Be Added to National Data-Base

I think this may be for the UK only.

One advantage to practicing sexual self control – being a celibate, NOT viewing porn, and so on – is you’re not going to be caught in any embarrassing scandals, like the government knowing you like to view  porn at all, or that you like to view specific kinds of porn.

One of the suggested mechanisms for checking how old people are involves creating an ID number for each person – meaning that every citizen will be part of a personalised database of their habits

The UK government’s plans to check whether people are old enough to watch pornography might include creating a database of everyone’s viewing habits.

The Government has recently been looking to introduce new checks to ensure that adult content can only be viewed by those over 18. To do that, it will introduce age verification schemes, and sites that don’t implement them will be rendered inaccessible from within the UK.

Those that are likely to be in charge of the process say that privacy should be at its heart. But the way that the systems are set up might not allow people to keep their data secure.
