NSPCC launch new removal tool for online images

With the increase being seen of online child exploitation and the sharing of explicit images the NSPCC have launched a new removal tool. 

The NSPCC and the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) in partnership with Yoti (an age verification platform) have launched Report Remove – a tool to help young people under 18 remove sexual images of themselves  online. Report Remove can support young people to report sexual images or video shared online and takes steps to remove it, if it is illegal.

Trying to remove an image or video online can be extremely difficult and upsetting for children and young people. Report Remove provides a child-centred approach to image removal which can be done entirely online, and NSPCC’s Childline service will ensure that the young person is safeguarded throughout the process. For more information, visit Report Remove and make sure the young people you work with are aware of this important tool.
