We’re on a mission to eliminate CSAM from the internet.

There is a child behind every CSAM file. To date, Safer has identified one million CSAM files on customer platforms.

Together, we’re building a safer internet.

What Makes Safer Different

  • A coordinated approach.

    We are transforming the internet by enabling companies worldwide to remove CSAM from their platforms and collaborate to disrupt its viral spread.

  • Centered on wellness.

    Our focus on mental wellbeing—within our own team and in Safer’s features—helps reduce burnout and safeguards the resilience of content moderators.

  • Industry expertise.

    Top tech companies lean on our industry expertise, partnerships, and cross-platform intelligence to deliver a robust CSAM detection solution.

The Threat

In 2021, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children’s CyberTipline received over 84.7 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 can be costly and inadequate due to incomplete or siloed data sets. The result could be ineffective solutions that only partially address the issue for content-hosting platforms.

Safer is helping to change this.

Why Thorn Made Safer

Safer was created and brought to market by Thorn to fill the need for a solution that could adequately tackle the growing CSAM issue.
