Electoral Register listing Allows Adult Content Access

This simple idea would assist those who do not have a Driving Licence or Passport. New rules mean that you have to prove your identity to your local council.  Usually through providing your  National Insurance Number, the council checks your age and ID with Government website and includes you on the next published register. Giffgaff could then check a member's age in the same way they do now with passports and licences.  It really is that easy.

A great idea. Not everyone has a new passport or driving license to prove ID, I know I have no end of trouble trying to prove my id with my bank tho they're happy to take my money. It's not just **** that can get trapped by this filter so would be good to be able to chose to remove it.

I support this idea as there has to be a way to confirm your age if you don't have access to a passport or driving license

ON A SERIOUS NOTE

Hi, I am Sarahs Nan, whom has allowed me to comment on this, as we fel a message should get across, whilst I wait for my sim to arrive in the post

I recently discovered my teenager girl, not Sarah, had been very unsafe online, to the point of having to confiscate her phone. There is a lack of trust now, so the electoral register, could be used in so many areas within the use of mobile phones. What we as parents, think our kids are doing safely online, you really need to check, and this would be helpful, to have the electoral register within certain areas of mobile phones, sims and their use of them. Safety, & age appropriate websites, as well as registering their right to vote being at the top of the list for priority use.. There really is so much out there that makes our kids vulnerable to the outside world. My child at 13 to 16 years was very, very lucky, not to have encountered a sinister outcome from her behaviour online. Please do use the electoral register, even if it's for 18+ years. Even if it can prove that they aren't 18. If they aren't on the electoral register.... They can't Access the 18 year old's content. Which makes them unsafe. A message to parents. Check on your child's phone. They are probably in need of an Electoral register

Hi all,

Just a quick note that we're continuing to evaluate a range of options. Ultimately we're going to need to pick one that works the best for members while still meeting the requirements of the yet-to-be-published new guidance. Part of that will be minimising cost as far as possible, as well as making the process as quick and easy as possible for all members.

good idea

Rubbish idea! I don't have a passport because I can't afford to go on holidays, and I am not registered to vote because until a government actually comes up with the idea of not taxing us, then why should they have my details and pester me every time an election comes up, anyway coming to the main subject restricting a user what he/she wants to see is a surefire way of losing customers (of course we are all concerned about children getting onto inappropriate websites, but the real question that needs to be asked is why was that child given a phone or tablet and then left unattended?)
