'So you got naked online...' is a resource that helps and advises young people who may find themselves in a situation where they (or a friend) have put a sexting image or video online and have lost control over that content and who it's being shared with.
Whilst there is a lot of advice around preventing these situations in the first place, it is very important to recognise that this does happen and those affected really need support and guidance.
So you got naked online? aims to do just that - it offers children, young people and parents advice and provides strategies to support the issues resulting from sexting incidents.
It's available in Welsh as well as English and as an audio recording.
In October 2020 we also created an SEND version of the resource (available as a downloadable pdf or an audio file). It is hosted on the Inclusive Digital Safety Hub.
Young people aged under 18 who are worried a sexual image or video of them may have been shared online can use Childline and IWF’s Report Remove tool at www.Childline.org.uk/remove
This helps children and young people to report an image or video they think has been shared online, to see if it is possible to get it removed. Once the report has been made, Childline supports the child and provides any updates or feedback.
