One important way for each Internet user is to help to increase the public awareness of the report office. Website operators can place a Stopline logo on their website and create a link to the Stopline website. In addition, handing out the Stopline brochure will support the raising of public awareness.

We also ask you to report any child pornographic or national socialist content that you might accidentally come across. Please do not actively search for illegal material on the Internet, as this might be illegal, even if you do it with the best intentions.

Unfortunately, there is no 100% protection for your child. However, there are different kinds of filter software that you can install on your computer. But there is still the problem that not all problematic content is filtered or that harmless content is not shown.

The most effective way to protect children is giving them knowledge about the safe use of the Internet and all its contents.

On Saferinternet.at, for instance, you will get detailed information.
