FACEBOOK AND CEOP GET ‘APPY
Facebook and CEOP join forces to deliver internet safety to young internet users
For the first time all Facebook users in the UK –especially those aged between 13 – 18 years – can have direct access to CEOP’s advice and reporting centre – ClickCEOP – from their homepage giving them the very latest help on online safety as well as a dedicated facility for reporting instances of suspected grooming or inappropriate sexual behavior.
ClickCEOP button will be provided via an application that users can add or bookmark so that it appears on their homepage as not only a constant source of help and reassurance for them but also as a strong visual signal to their friends, family and others that they are in control online.
Jim Gamble, Chief Executive of the Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) Centre said: “We know from speaking to offenders that a visible deterrent could protect young people online. We urge all Facebook users to add the app and bookmark it so that others can see that they’re in control online.
