The CZ.NIC Association operating – the Czech internet hotline, operating as part of the Czech Safer Internet Centre (SIC) – recently launched a mobile app for reporting illegal online content.

With the growing number of mobile internet users, the app offers a user-friendly way to report illegal content directly from mobile phones or tablets. The sharing feature enables users to copy internet addresses easily without storing illegal or harmful content on the mobile phone, which may possibly lead to violating a national law. In conjunction with introducing the mobile app, CZ.NIC also has redesigned the hotline website.

The Android app was developed under the creative common licence and so, in case of interest, is available for localisation by other hotlines in Europe.

While the National Safer Internet Centre (NCBI) in Czechia will be ending its engagement in the Safer Internet project and handing over the baton to a new project consortium, it looks back over the last decade of its involvement and summarises what has been achieved…  and what it will pass on to its successors.
