What does the Childsafenet President say?

Anil Raghubanshi, President of ChildSafeNet says, “We wanted to study people’s behavior in the lockdown period. We found that people are still watching porn despite its ban. During this period, children are vulnerable to sexual abuse. “

He added, “In most cases, the images captured by the victim are shared over the internet. So, we not only surveyed but also made people aware that they should not capture nude images just to keep in their phones too. If the image is uploaded to the internet, it creates a long-term impact. Being raped is definitely not good but if the images and videos are uploaded to the internet, it lasts almost forever. If anybody has faced such a problem, we help in removing the images and videos. For reporting child sexual abuse images and videos, anyone can report anonymously through the link on our website, ChildSafeNet, for the removal of such contents. We provide advice and tips on online safety through our messenger hotline. We also provide support in reporting cases.”
