Badoo is pleased to announce our recent new membership of the IWF, we fully support the work of all members to ensure UK networks provide a hostile environment for hosting child sexual abuse images and to protect UK internet users from inadvertent exposure to such content.
Funding for the IWF is provided by the EU and member companies from the online industry, including internet service providers (ISPs), mobile operators, content providers, hosting providers, filtering companies, search providers, trade associations and the financial sector.
Badoo joins other leading internet properties such as Yahoo!, Bing, Google, Ask Jeeves, Myspace, Facebook and AOL in supporting the work of the IWF.
About the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF)
The IWF was established in 1996 by the internet industry to provide the UK internetHotline for the public and IT professionals to report criminal online content in a secure and confidential way. The Hotline service can be used anonymously to report content within our remit. We work in partnership with the online industry, law enforcement, government, and international partners to minimise the availability of this content, specifically:
- child sexual abuse images hosted anywhere in the world
- criminally obscene adult content hosted in the UK
- non-photographic child sexual abuse images hosted in the UK.
