Welcome to the Internet Hotline

Fighting Child Sexual Abuse Material

We’re a member of the INHOPE global network of hotlines dedicated to combating child sexual abuse material on the internet. 

Who We Are

The Hotline enables the public to anonymously report possible CSAM. Our hotline analyst will investigate the report and if confirmed illegal, they act to have the content removed from the internet and notify law enforcement. The Hotline is run by APLE Cambodia as a member of the INHOPE leading global network of Hotlines, consisting of 43 countries around the world.

WHAT IS ONLINE CHILD SEXUAL EXPLOITATION?

Online child sexual exploitation is the act of using, coercing or luring a child to engage in sexual activity through the use of information and communication technology. It includes online grooming, child sexual abuse material or CSAM, sexual extortion or Sextortion and live-streaming of child sexual exploitation.

WHY SHOULD I REPORT IT?

Child sexual abuse is the most serious violation of the right of the child and leaves a devastating impact on a young child. The presence of child sexual abuse images and videos online means the child continues to be abused every time his/her images are seen.

By reporting abuse, you are helping us with the possible rescue of a child victim, the removal of images and the possible prosecution of an offender. Ignoring can be a criminal offence.

We are dedicated to combating online child sexual abuse and exploitation and protecting victims.
