New Online ‘Safety’ Bill

The commissioner could decide that, to access sexual content, users must upload their identity documents, scan their fingerprints, undergo facial recognition technology or have their age estimated by artificial intelligence based on behavioural signals.
The worst-case scenario here is governments collect databases of people’s sexual preferences and browsing histories…
The bill also creates an “online content scheme”, which identifies content that users can complain about.
In practice, people can potentially complain about any material depicting sex that they find on the internet, even on specific adult sites, if there is no mechanism to verify the user’s age.
