How to report image-based abuse
If an intimate image or video of you has been shared, or someone is threatening to share it without your consent, you can make a report no matter what your age.
We can help to get the intimate image or video removed and, in some cases, take action against the person who shared or threatened to share it.
What is an 'intimate' image or video?
An intimate image or video is one that shows:
- a person’s genital area or anal area (whether bare or covered by underwear)
- a person’s breasts (if the person identifies as female, transgender or intersex)
- private activity (for example a person undressing, using the bathroom, showering, bathing or engaged in sexual activity)
- a person without attire of religious or cultural significance if they would normally wear such attire in public.
