Have you discovered child abuse images online?

If you find the content on a major Internet platform such as Facebook or Twitter, it is usually fastest to report the content to the platform in question, who will in turn assess and report it to the appropriate authorities if appropriate. Do not repost the content asking others to take it down or report it, and do not take a copy of the content.

Follow these links for information about reporting a violation to Twitter (or use this form), Facebook, and Google.

If you cannot find a reporting mechanism for the Internet platform where you find the content, or if it is a lesser-known platform that might not have a mechanism to give it the rapid attention that it needs, then you should report the content to the NCMEC’s Cybertip line if you are in the United States, or to the International Association of Internet Hotlines INHOPE internationally.

A note about Tumblr: while it does have a special form to report abusive materials, there were raised concerns that the blogs are just automatically deleted by the algorithm, and the report isn’t passed to proper authorities, so using general report services is advised.
