Safari Mobile join IWF Membership

Published:  Tue 25 Feb 2014

Safari Mobile join the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) to protect their networks from the promotion of child sexual abuse imagery.

The technology and marketing company, Safari Mobile, operates a platform for providing premium rate services including sports alerts, competitions and downloads with the option for companies to upload and promote their own services using the same.

Through using the IWF Keywords service, Safari Mobile will be able to deter users from uploading, promoting and selling their own criminal content.

Eric Feltin, COO of Safari Mobile, said: “Every member of the communications industry needs to remain vigilant against illegal imagery and illegal activity on their networks. Safari Mobile, being a provider of world-class platforms for the promotion and distribution of virtual content, has always taken seriously its responsibilities in this regard. Today we take another important step forward in joining the Internet Watch Foundation, to work together to keep illegal imagery and activity off our platform.”

Susie Hargreaves, CEO of the Internet Watch Foundation, said: “The frequent abuse of companies networks are rare however it doesn’t make it less important to protect users from stumbling across online child sexual abuse imagery and make it more difficult for the re-victimisation of children to occur. Our partnership with Safari Mobile will bring us one step closer to our mission – eliminating child sexual abuse imagery online.”
