Has someone acted inappropriately towards you online, or to a child or young person you know? It may be sexual chat, being asked to do something that makes you feel uncomfortable or someone being insistent on meeting up. You can find advice on the CEOP website and can also report any concerns to CEOP using the CEOP Report Button on the right, and at the foot of every page.
- Remember, if you need immediate help call 999
