Since its launch, the Project Arachnid technology and network have led millions of images and videos of child sexual abuse to be removed from the internet, around the world. Protect Children’s analysts have assessed 935 489 CSAM images and videos between 2020-2022. Image assessments conducted by Protect Children have contributed to the delivery of more than 572 000 removal notices being sent to electronic service providers. 

Every child has the right to heal without the fear of the recordings of their abuse circulating online forever. Our work with CSAM victims and peer-support groups for parents and guardians of child victims of online sexual violence have truly confirmed to us the utmost importance of using the most efficient and effective tools to end the cycle of abuse” says Nina Vaaranen-Valkonen, Executive Director, Senior Specialist and psychotherapist, Suojellaan Lapsia ry /Protect Children
