Published:  Mon 18 Nov 2019

A bid to help keep children safe online has been welcomed as livestreaming platform LiveMe sets its sights on improving internet protection for users.

Video sharing platform LiveMe has announced it has joined the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) as a Member, in a move reinforcing its commitment to keeping users safe when using the app.

LiveMe is an app that connects musicians, singers, actors, DJs, storytellers and comedians with their fanbase.

As an IWF Member, LiveMe will receive advice from IWF experts and will actively contribute to conversations with other members to identify how industry players can continuously innovate to further protect users.

Susie Hargreaves OBE, CEO of IWF, said: "The Internet has no borders, and that is why it is so important for us to work together with LiveMe to keep children all over the world safe and make sure there is nowhere child abuse can be shared, and nowhere abusers can hide.

“We look forward to working with LiveMe, and welcome their help in working towards making the internet a safer place.”

A LiveMe spokesman said: “LiveMe is proud to join forces with Internet Watch Foundation as yet another line of defence among our industry-leading trust and safety efforts ensuring a safer online community for all.”
