The aim is for the new chatbot to 'target' users before they actually commit a criminal offence.
People trying to view sexual images of children online will trigger a first-of-its-kind chatbot, which has launched to help potential offenders stop their behaviour.
The End Violence Partnership has supported many of IWF’s projects, including the Reporting Portals project and the reThink chatbot project. Both tools are making the internet safer for all users.
We’re working in partnership with the End Violence Fund and the Lucy Faithfull Foundation to develop an innovative new chatbot to intervene and stop people looking at child sexual abuse imagery online before they’ve committed a crime.
A "pioneering" new partnership between the Internet Watch Foundation and MindGeek will offer a blueprint for how the adult industry can help in the fight against child sexual abuse material online.
