REPORT REMOVE – new tool to empower children and young people to stop spread of nude images online

Report Remove Tool
Report Remove Tool

North Yorkshire Safeguarding Children Partnership (NYSCP) is promoting the new Childline and Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) tool which helps children and young people to report a nude image or video of themselves that has been shared online. The IWF can then take steps to remove it from the Internet. Given the recent Ofsted report and research from many other organisations, we know there are many reasons for taking/sharing and equally many barriers to reporting images and videos. It is therefore imperative that young people know that they can take action themselves and that something will be done.

Importantly, a young person can even report an image/video that hasn’t been uploaded and shared. The IWF will assign a ‘hash’ (a digital fingerprint) to prevent the image being uploaded by anyone.

More information from the IWF can be found HERE and the Childline reporting tool, ‘Report Remove’, can be found HERE. We would urge you to raise awareness of the new service and share the information about the ‘Report Remove’ tool with your young people and their parents/carers.
