About reportit

Save the Children opened the ReportIt Internet hotline in 2001, which is an online hotline where people can anonymously report sexual abuse material involving children and young people that they have seen online. The hotline employees analyze the abuse material and ensure that it is forwarded to the appropriate authorities, other hotlines, or Interpol to ensure that it is removed and to further investigate it.

The hotline is part of a larger network of hotlines from around the world working closely with national authorities, Europol, and Interpol to remove child sexual abuse material from the Internet.

The Save the Children hotline receives financial support from the Danish Ministry of Social Affairs and the EU Commission for the work to prevent and limit the sexual exploitation of children on the Internet.
