What to Report

  • Anyone you don't know who asks you for personal information, photos, or videos.
  • Inappropriate or obscene material from people or companies you don't know.
  • Misleading URLs on the Internet that point you to sites containing harmful or inappropriate materials rather than what you were looking for.
  • Anyone who sends you photos or videos containing obscene content of individuals 18 and younger (the possession, manufacturing, or distributing of child pornography is illegal)
  • Anyone who asks you to meet in person for sexual activities (no one should be making sexual invitations to you online – and it’s an especially serious crime for adults to do it).

If any of the above happens to you or a friend, tell an adult you trust and report it to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children's CyberTipline at https://report.cybertip.org/.
