About Hotline

We are a member of the INHOPE global network of hotlines, leading in the fight against child sexual abuse material. 

About Hotline

Internet Hotline Cambodia (IHC) was established in 2015 with the support of INHOPE Foundation and the official launch was celebrated in 2016, dedicated to making online communities safer for children to use.

History

Run by APLE, the internet hotline is one of the globally connected hotlines dedicated to combating child sexual abuse material on the internet.

The Hotline provides a crucial link in the protective chain of interventions against child sexual abuse and exploitation, ensuring that the problem is investigated and if found to be illegal, for the information to be sent to law enforcement. 

We offer a secure web based hotline for the public to report child sexual abuse material (CSAM) anonymously and coordinates notice/takedown actions with law enforcement and other hotlines to have illegal content removed and the matter investigated.

A hotline enables the public to anonymously report online material they suspect may be illegal.

By the definition of INHOPE, a hotline enables the public to anonymously report online material they suspect may be illegal. A hotline analyst will investigate the report and if confirmed illegal, they act to have the content removed from the internet as rapidly as possible.
