What is Report Harmful Content?

Launched in December last year, this new national reporting centre has been designed to assist everyone in reporting harmful content online. Report Harmful Content has 2 main functions:

  1. Advice: Empowering anyone who has come across harmful content online to report it by providing up to date information on community standards and direct links to the correct reporting facilities across multiple platforms.
  2. Reporting: Providing further support to users over the age of 13 who have already submitted a report to industry and would like outcomes reviewed. Report Harmful Content will check submitted reports and industry responses against platform-specific reporting procedures and community standards in order to provide users with further advice on actions they can take.

What can we help with?

What else can I find on Report Harmful Content?

We recognise that harmful content online can be part of a bigger problem, and as such have signposted to other services that can help. We also provide the police with information about the various reporting mechanisms available to them as law enforcers. Our work with industry continues and you’ll also find links to the most up to date transparency reports for the most commonly used social networking platforms along with links to the safety centres of other social networking platforms on the site.
