New tool lets teenagers request naked photos and videos are removed from online | Daily Mail Online
By Gemma Parry For Mailonline. People under 18 can now use an online tool to help them remove nude images or videos of themselves from the internet after thousands of pictures were posted online in the first three months of the year. Created by the Internet Watch Foundation IWF and Childline, the online tool aims to help children who have been groomed, or who have had partners who have posted images of them online. The tool is a world first, according to the IWF, who will use it to screen images and try to remove them from the internet if they break the law. The Act makes it a criminal offence for a person to: 'disclose a private sexual photograph or film if the disclosure is made a without the consent of the individual who appears, and b with the intention of causing that individual distress'. It means those who maliciously share sexually explicit images without the subject's consent could face up to two years in prison.
