Globe is continuing its efforts to help mitigate illegal sites carrying child pornography content and online gambling!

The local telco giant notes that through the advocacy, the company is also educating consumers on rampant cases of online sexual abuse and exploitation of children (OSAEC) and how they can protect minors from such risks.

To ensure that these measures will work, the company has invested over USD 2.7 million (around PHP 139,166,100) in content filtering systems that block websites and imagery that promote child pornography, illegal gambling, and online piracy.

This is a part of the company's #MakeITSafePH initiative that started in 2017 and is in line with the Republic Act 9775 or the Anti-Child Pornography Act of 2009. It also partnered with the UK-based Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) where you can anonymously report suspected child sexual abuse images and videos to boost the protection of children online.

Globe is strongly committed to helping address child pornography in the country, which has become a troubling societal issue. We actively support government efforts to curtail these illegal activities through site blocking, and education and awareness campaigns, said Globe’s Chief Privacy Officer Irish Salandanan-Almeida.

In total, Globe said it has clamped down on 3,975 domains and 57,785 URs featuring child pornography.
