Age Verification Modals
Streamline and enhance your user experience, and protect your content from unqualified users using the Age Verification Modals Extension.
What are Age Verification Modals?
Many websites must abide by certain laws and are required to have their users verify their age before they can view the content because that content has been rated for such requirements by it’s governing bodies. This types of requirements are especially common in the Movie, Entertainment and Video Game Industries.
In all of these instances, these systems require hours of custom setup and programming.
Our Age Verification Modals Give You Results In Minutes
With our Age Verification Modals Extension, not only can you set this system up in less than 5 minutes out-of-the-box, but you give the user a more stream lined experience because of our unique modal functionality.
Because the user interaction takes place in a modal, there’s zero page loading and page switching.
Plus, while you save time and streamline and enhance your user experience, you can rest assured our Age Verfication Modals will protect your content from unqualified users.
How Does It Work?
Using our patented combination of Age Verification Triggers and Age Verification Cookie Creation Events, you can lock down you site and rest assured our technology will do the rest.
Use the Age Verification Trigger to trigger your popup when a new visitor arrives at your site. With the Age Verified Cookie Creation Event, you won’t have to worry about your popups spamming your users once they do verify their age.
If the user is underage, forward them to a site of your choosing. You can give the users as many tries as you like to verify their age, but if you use the Age Verification Failed Trigger with the Age Verification Failed or Age Verification Lockout Cookie Creation Events, once they return to the site, they will be locked out and continuously forwarded until this Cookie Expires.
This is how you can rest assured under-qualified users won’t be able to access your site until you allow them. Read more about how these Triggers and Cookies are used together in the Usage Examples Section below.

Our Age Verification Modals use Triggers and Cookies to perform and secure your site at a high level. If you’re new to Triggers and Cookies, check out our doc on Cookies and our doc on using Triggers and Cookies together.
Based on what Age Verification Form setup you’re using (Birthdate Type with No Lockout, for example), you would setup your Age Verification popup exactly like the screenshot guide below.
Using one of these three different screenshot guide Usage Examples below is a great way to begin if you’re just getting started with Age Verification Modals.
We used a default Cookie Time of one month for each Cookie, but you may want that to be different depending on your website/personal preference.
Age Verification Form Types
Birthdate Type with Lockout Disabled
The Birthdate Type requires the user enter their age – month, day, year – manually, via keyboard:
Leaving the Lockout Feature (found under the General Settings Tab of the Form) unchecked will give your users only one try to enter an age that meets the requirements to enter your website, or they will be forwarded to the Exit URL.
To make sure it works seamlessly, setup your Triggers and Cookies like this:
Birthdate Type with Lockout Enabled
This Age Verification Form is just like the one above, except if gives your users as many tries as you see fit to verify their ages.
To make sure it works perfectly, setup your Triggers and Cookies like this:
Enter/Exit Type (Lockout Feature not available)
The Enter/Exit Type is simply an enter button and an exit button.
The Lockout feature does not apply in this case, which means the user only gets one chance. As such, we setup our Cookies and Triggers like this:

Can I customize the appearance of my Age Verification Modal?
Will users be able to access the site by simply closing the popup?
When you use the Age Verification Trigger, it acts as a beefed up Auto Open Trigger that has had the Close Button Disabled so users can’t simply close the popup and see your site.
What occurs when the user inputs that they are under 21?
They will forwarded to the Exit URL of your choosing when you setup your Age Verification Trigger.
What happens if they come back after being forwarded?
Can search engines crawl the content contained after your Age Verification Modals?
Search engines can crawl the content behind the popup. If you don’t want that, then you are likely looking for a paywall style age verification. This means it redirects them to a page to verify the age, then back again to where they came from – this way no content is loaded.
