New laws are coming into place in July which will mean all internet users will have to verify their age before being able to access pornography.

Everyone will be automatically blocked from using free sites like PornHub and YouPorn unless they can prove their age.

This is despite privacy concerns surrounding the requirement to use government issued ID such as a passport or a driving licence to verify users’ ages.
