Google to block abuse images

Posted on Updated on

Search engine companies Google and Microsoft have now blocked over thousands of terms that used to show illegal material concerning child abuse.

Now, if everyone uses one of the 100,000 terms of the list, no results will be shown and it will trigger warning that child abuse imagery is illegal.

The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom has welcomed the move, but warns that this must deliver or else he will look for other solutions.

The two companies, who togheter make up 95% of all search trafiic, are planning to do this and more to prevent people to reach illegal imagery.
