Age restricted content and age verification
To protect children, young people and vulnerable people, we block access to 18+ content which is classified by the BBFC (British Board of Film Classification), in accordance with the OFCOM code of practise and UK and EU regulation.
If a site has been rated 18+ you won't be able to access it without giving us proof of age.
Sites are normally considered 18+ because they contain content such as pornography or violence, or relate to illegal activity such as hacking, phishing, hate and drugs.
Sometimes we might block a site by mistake – if you think we've blocked something unnecessarily, or we've missed an inappropriate website, you can ask us to review the website by getting in touch with customer services.

Once you've given us proof of your age, we'll remove the restrictions and won't ask again.
To check your child's phone is set at the right age level, call the age verification line on 61018, or go to ageverification.o2.co.uk.
Please note: Sites that host illegal content are automatically blocked to everyone, and can't be unblocked.
