Create a new Box

As a headline for the box you can write the following text "Our content is Age Restricted for guests above 21 years old.". Of course, you can write anything else that fits your website better.

Trigger Options

The optimal configuration for an age verification box is to set it to trigger at the center of the screen once the page loads. Take a look at the screenshot below to see the options for this result.

Appearance

Also to virtually lock the content behind it, it is best if you set a background overlay and disable the closing of the box with any way except from answering the age verification question. Take a look at the screenshot below to see the options for this result.
