How to report online abuse to us
What kind of material do you want to report?
Cyberbullying is online behaviour that is seriously threatening, intimidating, harassing or humiliating. We can take action to get serious cyberbullying material removed, and provide advice, support and assistance.
If you are under 18 you can make a complaint about cyberbullying or online bullying.
We can help to get the intimate images or video removed and, in some cases, take action against the person who shared it. We can also help with sextortion, or where someone is blackmailing you over your intimate images.
If an intimate image has been shared, or someone is threatening to share it without your consent, you can make a report no matter what your age.
Child sexual abuse material
We investigate complaints from Australian residents and law enforcement agencies about offensive and illegal online content, including child sexual abuse material. We can also investigate reports about other content that:
- promotes in matters of crime or violence
- provides instruction in paedophilia
- advocates terrorist acts
- shows gratuitous depictions of violence and sexual violence
- is sexually explicit
