k-ID, a technology company founded by industry leaders in online safety, privacy, and gaming, has unveiled a new platform aiming to transform the gaming experience for young players and parents while assisting publishers and developers in adhering to complex regulations, as well as ensuring compliance is being met.

Instead of focusing on individual games or publishers, k-ID is aiming to offer a wider solution towards safer, age-appropriate online experiences for children and young people globally. With its broader approach to online safety and gaming, the k-ID platform is an alternative measure compared to already established verification processes and pop-ups.
