What is intimate image abuse?

This content can be shared in a multitude of ways including, in-person, through texts, emails and messages, on social media platforms, porn sites and in group chats. This crime can be committed by anyone and anyone can be affected. If you have been affected, please remember this isn’t your fault and you haven’t done anything wrong.

The Revenge Porn Helpline is available in the UK, and is openMonday to Friday 10am - 4pm by calling 0345 6000 459 or emailing help@revengepornhelpline.org.uk

What is StopNCII.org?

StopNCII.org (Stop Non-Consensual Intimate Image Abuse) is a free global tool to protect intimate images from being shared online by perpetrators of intimate image abuse. 

StopNCII.org creates a digital fingerprint, known as a hash, of your intimate image so it can be blocked from sharing on participating platforms. Intimate images are never transferred to nor saved on the StopNCII.org website, instead, the image never leaves the user's device.
