    I've just watched a gambling video and I didn't get checked. Maybe it will filter out to me in a few days time? Or like someone said here, I'm already verified for some reason.

    Mine is 15 years old - I forgot it is a verified account though from back in the day - had skipped my mind.

    Huh, haven't seen this age restriction. Maybe ask your adult to change your restriction level in Google Family Link :o

    Actually, that was a joke, but if you are considering setting up the family app for more mature children, don't bother, it's a joke.

    so now we gotta choose between handing over our credit cards to google or some random vpn company because parents are too damn lazy to control what their kids are watching online?

    Yeah but it's not about that, is it. "Security" is just an excuse to hoover up data.

    Imagine uploading your passport to Google so you can watch a bloody video. Just insane.

    Mine is a verified account as well and I still get this. It's also 15 years old. So it isn't related.

    Had it a couple of weeks ago, tried to play Adam Freeland's 'We want your soul', a track I've played hundreds of times before, and had to link my CC.
    From the comments, I wasn't the only one.
    It's not even a rude song.

    That doesn't change anything, still requires verification.

    This is probably a test-bed for a wider rollout. They're seeing how easily they can get people's passports.

    Soon it'll be a requirement to use Gmail in the interests of "security".

    a fair point, although i was more reacting to the governmental requirement than google's acceptance/implementation

    Use a credit card to verify immediately
    You won't be charged. Any transaction fee will be fully refunded.

    Use your ID
    Submit an image of a valid ID, like your driver's licence or passport. It may take up to three days to verify your ID.

    What's your point? It's optional. I've never given my passport info to Google.

    There has to be a point? I'm only stating what it says.
