Here at Vivastreet, offering a safe and trusted service for our users is of paramount importance. Which is why we have partnered with Yoti’s verification service to encourage our users to age verify their accounts.
This means that if you’re an independent professional with an advert in an adult related category you can now have an official age verified ad, to validate that you’re over the age of 18.
If you have an account with us and would like your ad to be Yoti age verified, then watch our ‘How to set up your Yoti account with Vivastreet’ here.
Alternatively, you can learn more about Yoti, its benefits, and a comprehensive step by step on how to make your Vivastreet account Yoti age verified, below.
