What should you do if you find extremist or terrorist content online?

You can help the police to curb the spread of terrorism and extremism online by reporting content such as:

  • Articles, images, speeches or films promoting terrorism or racial or religious violence

  • Videos of terror attacks

  • Postings inciting people to commit acts of terrorism or violent extremism

  • Messages intended to stir up hatred against any religious or ethnic group

  • Bomb-making instructions

  • Advice on how to obtain or make weapons

If you see online graphic or violent extremist material or content that supports, directs or glorifies terrorism you should report it using this anonymous online reporting form.

You will not be asked to give your name or any other details about yourself. However, if you wish to receive updates about your report and what happens as a result, you may leave your contact details if you wish.

A specialist police team will examine the content and will work with internet companies to remove it if appropriate.

However, the action they take can take many forms, from removal of a social media account to a full investigation.  Depending on what action is taken, it may not always be possible to update you on progress.
