There is no seperate age verification process anymore. Your age is determined by your RL birthdate, which you entered during the process of creating your account. If you are over 18 years old you just have to set your preference to view mature and adult content.

Age verification was abandoned years ago. Your age is based on the date of birth (your RL one) which you provided when you registered. If you are under 18, you only can access to General content (both in SL and on the Marketplace). If you are over 18, here's some reading for you. :) (forget about what you heard about "age verfied cards": there was never such a thing in SL!)

How to change your preferences to view adult content

Even if you are 18 or older, you still need to opt in to view adult content. 

 Log into Second Life, then follow these steps in the Viewer to set your maturity preferences:

  1. Choose Me > Preferences (or Ctrl-P) and click the General tab.
  2. Choose General, Moderate, Adult from the I want to access content rated: dropdown menu.

  3. Click OK.
Congratulations! You may now visit any publically accessible land in Second Life, regardless of its maturity rating.
