What is exactly an internet hotline?

The Hotline offers an online reporting facility for the public to report illegal, harmful or abusive online content  including child sexual abuse material (and other harmful contents). The Hotline will ensure that the reports are investigated and if found to be illegal the information will be passed to the relevant Law Enforcement Agency and in many cases the Internet Service Provider hosting the content.

The Biztonsagosinternet Hotline was set up in May 2011 in the context of the EU Safer Internet Programme. The hotline is part of the Hungarian Safer Internet Centre and is operated by International Children's Safety Service.

The hotline is a member of INHOPE, the Association of Internet Hotlines since 2012. The hotline complies with the Code of Practice of INHOPE.
