Removing Pictures/Videos

Information, resources and tools to help you remove sexual pictures and videos from the Internet.

Select the provider where the picture/video is being displayed.

  1. Include your age: It is important to tell them if you are a child/youth. Include your age at the time the picture/video was taken as well as your current age.
  2. Say that you are the person in the picture/video: If you are recognizable in the picture/video, include this as well – this may give your report a higher priority.
  3. Say that you did not post the picture/video, did not agree to it being posted and want it removed: They need to know that you object to the continued posting of the picture/video.
  4. Let them know if you sent the picture/video to someone else: Include those names as most providers set out rules for the type of content that can be posted and those who break the rules may be prevented from posting content in the future.
