StopNCII (Stop Non-Consensual Intimate Image Abuse) is a free global tool to protect intimate images from being shared online by perpetrators of intimate image abuse. creates a digital fingerprint, known as a hash, of your intimate image so it can be blocked from sharing on participating platforms. Intimate images are never transferred to nor saved on the website, instead, the image never leaves the user's device.

StopNCII Overview

How Does Work? allows those being threatened with intimate image abuse to create unique identifiers of their images, known as ‘hashes’, without the image ever leaving their device. The hashes are then submitted to the bank from where they will be shared with participating partners.

If an image is uploaded to the platform that matches the corresponding hash, the image will be moderated. If it meets the criteria of an intimate image, it will be removed and blocked from any further sharing across all partner platforms. Watch this video to find out more.
