Report abuse

The eSafety Commissioner helps Australians deal with online abuse. International visitors to this website should seek assistance in their own country.


Cyberbullying is the use of technology to bully a person or group with the intent to hurt them socially, psychologically or even physically.

If you are under 18 you can make a complaint about cyberbullying or online bullying.

Image-based abuse

Image-based abuse occurs when intimate, generally nude or sexual images are shared without the consent of those pictured.

If an intimate image has been shared, or threatened to share it without your consent, you can make a report.

Illegal and harmful content

Child sexual abuse material, material that promotes, incites, or instructs in, terrorist acts or violent crimes.

The Cyber Report team investigates complaints and assists in getting content removed.
