What is Age restriction?

Under Age-restriction, any content that falls under pre-set parameters are restricted from any user under 18 years old or those who are not logged in. The age restriction was implemented to ensure that the right content is provided to the right audience. For any video to be age restricted it must have any content related to the use of any vulgar language, violence, disturbing, harmful or dangerous content, or content related to nudity and sexuality. But sometimes, a video can also be age-restricted if, the content found is inappropriate for some audience.
