Illegal online content reporting application for mobile devices launched
INHOPE has launched the ‘INHOPE mobile’ application during the 3rd Annual Law Enforcement and Industry Conference held in Rome last month. The new application allows users to report illegal content (including child sexual abuse material) via their mobile devices while online.
INHOPE mobile is a free tool for a user to anonymously report any suspect illegal content through their mobile device. The report will then be forwarded to the hosting country’s hotline which will investigate the report according to the national legislation and, where appropriate, the relevant law enforcement agencies will be informed and the content removed.
To download the INHOPE mobile reporting application, visit the INHOPE mobile web page.
The application is currently available for Windows Phone7, Android and iPhone devices, and can be downloaded for free.
INHOPE is the International Association of Internet Hotlines based in Amsterdam, and coordinates a network of Internet Hotlines all over the world, supporting them in responding to reports of illegal content (including child sexual abuse material) to make the internet safer.
