What should I do if I encounter harmful online content?
Have you encountered any of the following situations on social media or messaging platforms?
You see or receive harmful, illegal or offensive content
Your personal details have been shared without your consent
Your image/video has been used inappropriately (e.g photoshopped/edited on other content)
Your image/video has been uploaded without your consent
If you or someone you know has, you can make a report.
With the help of our AfA members from technology companies, we have compiled a list of reporting channels on various platforms where inappropriate or offensive content will be reviewed and may be removed.
There are also safety features and programmes by platforms to enable a safer online experience for our young.
The Singapore Council of Women's Organisations (SCWO) has also put together resources and support materials HERE.
