Report online child sexual abuse images & videos

If you stumble across child sexual abuse online, report it to us.

We know that seeing images and videos of child sexual abuse online is upsetting. But if you stumble across it, report it to us.

It's the right thing to do.

Reporting is quick, easy and anonymous. It can lead to the removal of criminal content and even the rescue of a child from further abuse. But, if you’d like to find out what happened to your report, you can leave an email address and request we get in touch.

You can anonymously and confidently report:

  • Child sexual abuse pictures or videos on the internet.
  • Non-photographic child sexual abuse images.

If you're under 18 and need to report online sexual images of yourself, please report confidentially via Report Remove - a joint project between IWF and Childline. 

We use the term 'child sexual abuse' to reflect the gravity of the images and videos we deal with. Child pornography, child porn and kiddie porn are not acceptable descriptions. A child cannot consent to their own abuse.

What you can & can’t report

Reporting anything other than child sexual abuse images or videos wastes valuable charity resources and prevents our analysts from finding and removing more child sexual abuse imagery online. Find out how you can report something else.
