Child sexual abuse material (legally known as child pornography) refers to any content that depicts sexually explicit activities involving a child. Visual depictions include photographs, videos, digital or computer generated images indistinguishable from an actual minor.
Child sex trafficking “refers to the recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, obtaining, patronizing, or soliciting of a minor for the purpose of a commercial sex act.” If you find evidence of child sex trafficking, call the National Human Trafficking Hotline at 1-888-373-7888.
Should you come across CSAM, it is critical that you NEVER FORWARD or SHARE abuse being committed against a child. Please follow the reporting procedures outlined here to social media platforms, law enforcement, and the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children's CyberTipline.
