An association created by an IT company opens a "Hibou accusation hotline"

The Safer Internet Association, which is created by an IT company, has opened the "Accusation Hotline" in June, which accepts online consultations on accusation on the Internet.

The number of consultations last year was 2859, which means that it is on the rise.

This group responds to consultations from the victims when they write false accusations or injuries on the Internet, and when children or students are damaged, parents or school officials also contact them. We are accepting.

The content is not a pseudonym when working on the Internet, but an actual individual is identified, and if it is something that lowers the social reputation or is insulting, we are asking the provider etc. to take measures such as deleting it. ..
