Simultaneous Alerts (US only)
For a US company, being an IWF Member is the quickest way to protect your services against online child sexual abuse content
IWF Simultaneous Alerts are immediate alerts about child sexual abuse images or videos hosted on US company networks. They're designed to reduce the length of time child sexual abuse imagery is hosted globally.
When we find child sexual abuse images and videos being hosted on US networks we send a notification to the relevant hotline. At the same time, we send a Simultaneous Alert to you so that you can take action to remove the content from your network (a Memorandum of Understanding with the US hotline allows us to do this).
How our Simultaneous Alerts can help you
We've noticed that companies who receive Simultaneous Alerts from us are removing the content on average 40% quicker than those not getting the Simultaneous Alerts.
Who can use it?
Our Simultaneous Alerts are available to US companies who provide these services:
• online file storage
• social networking.
