Our age gate feature allows an advertiser to verify an end user's age by entering their birthdate in MM/DD/YYYY format before joining a list.
NEVER allowed on our codes (even with age gate):
Sex, Hate, Firearms, Marijuana & CBD oil
The age gate message is the following: "Please provide us with your birthdate in MM/DD/YYYY format to proceed."
If the user is over 21 years of age, they will receive the opt-in message and be added unto a list.
If the user is under 21 years, they will receive the following message: "Sorry, you must be 21 years or older to join our text alerts."
If the user enters an invalid format, they will receive the following message: "You must reply with your birthdate in MM/DD/YYYY format to proceed, you replied with an invalid date"
Please note that applying Age Gate will override the requirements for double opt-in and custom "Reply Yes" messages.
