APPG publish report on self-generated indecent images

Date: Thursday, 14th Oct 2021 | Category: General

The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Social Media has published a report on addressing the rise in self-generated indecent images of children online. Recommendations include: tech companies should not introduce encryption unless they can guarantee they can still remove illegal content and cooperate with law enforcement, the relationships and sex education (RSE) curriculum should facilitate conversations about healthy relationships in a digital age, and the Home Office should review all relevant legislation to ensure it is as easy as possible for children to have their images removed from the internet.
