The websites below provide a comprehensive list of links and information about online safety. They will help you to understand the risks as well as giving you the practical advice you need to talk to your children and support them so they can use these new communication tools safely and responsibly.

The Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) has created the world's first tool to help children and young people get naked images of themselves removed from the internet.

The Report Remove Tool can be accessed through the Childline website. IWF analysts will then review the content and create a unique digital fingerprint known as a hash, before sharing it with tech companies to help prevent it from being uploaded and shared.
