NEW National Public Referral Tool for Counter Terrorism Internet Referral Unit (CTIRU) – the iREPORTit app launches on 24th February 2021
The CTIRU have teamed up with the Mayor of London and Raven Science (a tech spin-out from City, the London University) to develop and pilot a new national public referral app for online terrorist content.
City Hall commissioned research shows that the public want to play a role in countering extremist content but lack awareness of how to do so. Reporting channels are reported to be difficult to use and people aren’t confident that current referral systems are anonymous - which is currently prohibiting the public from raising concerns.
The iREPORTit app will allow people to refer worrying or disturbing content to the CTIRU easily, effectively and, crucially, completely anonymously. There should be no safe space for terrorists online – the CTIRU have a team of specially trained officers who can assess each referral and take appropriate action.
The iREPORTit app is compatible with both iOS and Android. The app carries the Action Counters Terrorism (ACT)
The app has been created in London but is built for use across the country as extremism does not recognise the invisible borders that separate us.
Terrorist content online has consequences in real life.
Download #iREPORTit today, and anonymously report disturbing online content.
