Help protect younger children from sexual abuse.
Every 2 minutes our analysts in Cambridge remove a photo online of a child suffering sexual abuse.
As one of the world’s leading organisations fighting online child sexual abuse we rely on the generous support of members of the public, charitable giving bodies and the business community. Your support will help us continue and increase our vital work helping these victims.
This is the second year that we have published two contrasting sets of domain analysis data, with a view to providing additional insights into the distribution and hosting hotspots of child sexual abuse images and videos across different countries and internet infrastructures.
Specifically, while URL-level data indicates the number of reports and actions required to notify and remove this content, that granular detail may obfuscate the prevalence, or number, of unique domains identified to be hosting child sexual abuse material when analysed in different contexts.
For clarity, the diagram below sets out the domain naming conventions used throughout this report.
The data represented above shows the number of unique websites we identified to be hosted in each country. Each unique website was only counted once and attributed to its host country at the time of assessment. If a website changed its hosting country location at any point during the year, then the site was counted in each of the locations it was encountered. These numbers do not represent the individual number of URLs or reports that were actioned for each unique website.
