Tell Congress to Hold Big Tech Accountable for Endangering Children!

National Center on Sexual Exploitation

Every day, millions of minors use electronic devices with access to popular apps and social media platforms that include exploitative content that is not consistent with their age rating or app description.

As such, these apps and social media platforms are increasingly used for sexual harassment and sexualized bullying, including unsolicited nude images (or cyber-flashing), repeated requests for nudes, revenge (or non-consensually shared) pornography, unwanted exposure to pornography, and more.

To add insult to injury, there are no systems or mechanisms in place that can hold tech companies accountable for business practices that routinely ignore and even endanger the wellbeing of minors.

Additionally, smart devices themselves lack robust, user-friendly, and comprehensive parental control settings and thereby leave parents in a difficult spot when trying to protect their children when they use smart devices

In light of this reality, we are urging you to join with us and countless others by contacting your elected officials to urge them to take action to protect minors from sexual exploitation in these digital spaces.
