Your iPhone And The Fight to End Online Sexual Exploitation of Children
Modern slavery heroes IJM recently said they were eager to hear Apple's efforts to protect the vulnerable from the dangers of Online Sexual Exploitation of Children (OSEC). Introduced by Apple in August, the child safety features were aimed at limiting the spread of Child Sexual Abuse Material (CSAM). But now, the tech giant has delayed its efforts. Executive Director of IJM's Center to End OSEC, John Tanagho, disagreed with the delay of these safety features and is featured in both USA Today and the Washington Post
speaking up in support of these efforts and why protection is imperative in the digital age.
"Apple's changes are a positive step forward and must not be delayed," he wrote in a statement. "The world should not elevate the hypothetical and unlikely corruption of child safety solutions over the known and rampant misuse of existing technology to harm children."
