IWF’s fight to make internet a safer place for children bolstered by new partner

Published:  Wed 7 Sep 2022

Safety tech organisation VerifyMy has joined the Internet Watch Foundation as a new Member, helping to keep the internet free from illegal child sexual abuse content.

IWF Members are given access to a range of services that aid organisations to keep their users, employees and children safe online.

VerifyMy will use the IWF’s Keywords List, a unique list of words, phrases, and codes offenders may use to conceal child sexual abuse imagery on legitimate networks and platforms.

“Like the IWF, we exist to make the internet a safer place for children and society and proud to be playing our part to help stop child sexual abuse online,” said Andy Lulham, COO of VerifyMy.

“Our safety tech solutions, incorporating age assurance, identity authentication and content moderation, are designed to protect young and vulnerable people from potentially harmful and/or illegal products, services and content. We are extremely proud to be working alongside the IWF.”

Susie Hargreaves OBE, Chief Executive of the IWF, said: “Partnering with organisations like VerifyMy is vital in our mission to protect children online.

“By sharing our expertise and valuable data lists we can help stop internet predators from sharing and distributing images and footage of child sexual abuse material. Knowing this material is still being passed around online can devastate victims and prevent them from ever fully recovering from their abuse.”
