Preventing Online Abuse

Zipit

ChildLine have launched their first ever app designed to provide tools to defuse the pressures on young people to send an explicit image or video. Called ‘Zipit’, the free app offers witty images to send instead of explicit ones, advice for how to engage in safe chat, what to do if you feel threatened or if an image becomes public, and a direct link to call ChildLine.  You can see more information on the app on the website www.childline.org.uk/zipit
