CEOP is here to help keep you and other children and young people safe online.  CEOP stands for Child Exploitation and Online Protection . CEOP can help and give you advice if something has happened online which has made you feel unsafe, scared or worried. This might be from someone you know in real life, or someone you have only ever met online.

Here are some of the things children and young people have reported:

Someone online has asked me to send them nude images

I shared a nude image with someone online and they are threatening me

I did something that I was embarassed about on webcam and someone has turned nasty towards me

Someone I don't know is asking me to live-stream and do things I don't want to do

Someone online kept asking me to meet them face-to-face and I feel pressured by them

Someone online was talking to me about sex and it made me feel uncomfortable

Someone online is putting pressure on me to do things I don't want to do

Someone I met in an online game keeps trying to talk to me privately

What will happen next?
