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

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

The Threat

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.

Safer is changing 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.
