We’re on a Mission to Eliminate CSAM from the Internet.

There is a child behind every file, hash, and piece of content. To date, Safer has identified 2.8+ million potential CSAM files on customer platforms.

Together, we’re building a safer internet.

Why Safer

With a relentless focus on CSAM elimination strategies, Safer helps protect content-hosting platforms and their users from the risks of hosting child sexual abuse images and videos.

Our industry-leading CSAM detection tools are powered by:

What Makes Safer Different

  • A coordinated approach.

    We are transforming the internet by enabling platforms worldwide to detect CSAM and collaborate to prevent its viral spread.

  • Centered on wellness.

    Our focus on mental wellbeing—within our own team and in Safer’s features—ensures content moderators can avoid burnout and safeguard their resilience.

  • Issue expertise.

    Top content-hosting platforms rely on our issue expertise, proprietary research, and state-of-the-art classifiers to deliver a robust CSAM detection solution.

The Issue

In 2022, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children’s CyberTipline received over 88.3 million files of child sexual abuse material (CSAM) from electronic service providers (ESPs) alone.

Reports from ESPs constitute the majority of reports received by NCMEC and show that content-hosting platforms are critical partners in addressing this issue.

Platform protection remains inconsistent across the industry. Companies that attempt to build their own solution quickly learn that the endeavor is costly and ineffective due to incomplete or siloed data sets. The result is ineffective solutions that only partially address the issue for content-hosting platforms.

See how Safer customers are making an impact.
