After a month of testing in the United Kingdom, the new PornHub chatbot has been a success, which seeks to alert users who delve into illegal content, has identified 173,000 interventions and has managed to remove a large number of pages related to child abuse.

What can happen if the chatbot is done worldwide?

The chatbot appears when someone searches PornHub for any of the 28,000 terms that refer to child pornography. This pop-up, designed by the LucyFaithfull Foundation in conjunction with the Internet Watch Foundation, asks a series of questions and explains to people that such searches may be illegal.

The goal of this tool is to interrupt someone looking for child sexual abuse material, since its launch more than 170,000 times in March, which means 159 people have clicked on the helpline website.

Following its success, PornHub now wants to roll out the feature worldwide, a move that has been hailed as truly innovative in the British press. The fear perhaps resides in the fact that if in just one month in a country there have been such a number of searches, what can happen if it is done worldwide.

Apart from this novelty, PornHub for its part, in collaboration with the previous association and others, removes websites with content related to minors on a monthly basis.
