Report Remove

Report Remove is here to help young people under 18 in the UK to confidentially report sexual images and videos of themselves and remove them from the internet.

How Report Remove works

Having your nudes shared can feel scary, and it can leave you feeling worried or even ashamed. But it’s not your fault. 

It’s against the law for anyone to share a sexual image or video of someone who’s under 18, and we’re working with the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) and Yoti to help you remove any sexual image or video of you that’s online. 

Report Remove is safe, easy and free – all you need to do is follow these steps: 

  • choose your age range
  • create a Childline account so we can send you updates on your report
  • report your image or video to the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF)
  • talk to a Childline counsellor if you want any extra support, or access support on the Childline website 
  • check your Childline locker a few days after your report to see if you need to add any more information and to see updates on your report 
  • report any issues with this process by sending an email from your Childline locker with the subject 'Report Remove' and as much information about the problem as you can.

The Internet Watch Foundation can only remove sexual images and videos of people who are under 18. But there are other ways to get support:


If you’re 18 now but were under 18 in the photo or video, you can contact the IWF directly for support in getting it removed.
