How the IWF works?The IWF offers the public a safe place to report suspected online child sexual abuse images and videos anonymously. The IWF’s team of expert content analysts pro actively search for child sexual abuse images and videos and provides members with a list of keywords which provides cryptic terms associated with child sexual abuse material.

IWF URL List When child sexual abuse is found, the IWF compiles and maintains a list of URLs for individual webpages with child sexual abuse content called the IWF URL List. The list typically contains between 5,000 and 12,000 URLs every day with a daily ‘churn’ of content being added to the list and removed from the list as appropriate.
