Trigger warning: child sexual abuse

Watch other media

Our demand is that Apple make their products safer for kids:

Let kids report abuse: Create easily accessible reporting in iMessage for kids and parents to report inappropriate images and harmful situations.

Require safer apps: Monitor the App Store to ensure exploitative and dangerous apps are unavailable to children and that only age-appropriate apps are advertised to kids.

Stop the spread of child sexual abuse: Stop the storage and spread of known child sexual abuse images and videos in iCloud.

Join us in holding Apple accountable.
