Hi all,

Currently our sign-up form makes users feel older (born 1990 or earlier?), and excludes some kids born in the magic year: https://accounts.firefox.com/signup

Finally… here are three proposals to improve our age verification:

Remember that The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA) is a United States federal law that requires that we use a “neutral" age verification mechanism.

I believe option #1 and #2 are neutral, but I’ll require legal input for #3.

Which do you prefer: #1, #2, #3, #3a or leave it the same?
