Exploitation Resources

The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children is committed to providing resources and assistance to protect children from child sexual exploitation. In addition to helping law enforcement stop the sexual abuse of children, we provide global services to disrupt the circulation of the images of their abuse. The resources included on this page can help survivors and their families navigate the best path to take.

Having nudes or sexually exploitive images or videos taken when you were a child out there on the internet can be frightening and overwhelming, but there is hope to get it taken down. Survivors often say the process to get images down can be complicated, but NCMEC is here to help. Learn what resources are available, instructions for reporting images or videos directly to the tech companies.

Recovering from child sexual exploitation can be a challenging road, and it can often feel like you are navigating it alone. Having worked with communities of survivors, NCMEC knows that feelings of isolation, fear, and worry can make seeking resources a difficult process. There is an army of professionals at NCMEC and other organizations who may be able to help you.
