Pedophiles Searching For Child Porn Will Now Find Warnings, Not Pictures

0

In a joint effort from Google and Microsoft, people searching for child pornography on the internet will now receive warnings, instead of pictures.

Google says it targeted 100,000 search terms associated with child sexual abuse and blocked them from delivering illegal results, according to BBC News.

Google’s executive chairman, Eric Schmidt wrote in the Daily Mail that the company now has “more than 200 people to work developing new, state-of-the-art technology to tackle the problem” to stop the sharing of illegal child abuse photos on the Internet.

“As important, we will soon roll out these changes in more than 150 languages, so the impact will be truly global,” Schmidt 

Schmidt announced the change just after 386 children were rescued in Canada in one of the largest child sex trafficking investigations in history.

YouTube is also currently developing technology to detect pornographic videos that will be shared with other Internet firms in an effort to crack down on illegal content.
