Czech hotline introduces a new mobile app
- Czech Safer Internet Centre
The CZ.NIC Association operating STOPonline.cz – 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.
