Yubo is making significant strides in the fight against inappropriate content for minors online. The social media platform recently joined forces with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) to improve safety and security measures for combating thesea crimes. Yubo’s partnership with NCMEC allows them to monitor, detect and report any suspicious activity on its platform, which may involve the exploitation of minors.

The team at Yubo takes genuine concern over preventing these types of cases by providing their users with a safe online environment. Currently, Yubo enforces its community guidelines which puts restrictions on who can use the app, such as users must be 13 or older. They also suppress accounts that show signs of predatory behavior or contain suggestive material involving minors, whether knowingly or unknowingly posted.

Apart from enforcing existing safety protocols, Yubo collaborates with NCMEC to improve artificial intelligence technology, allowing them to quickly detect and remove obscene pictures and videos featuring children. This technology benefits other organizations similar to NCMEC, protecting against malicious online and offline activities, thereby safeguarding their members’ interests in the digital world.

In addition to this measure, the company exercises trauma-informed responses when these incidents occur to not traumatize any victim further due to policies regarding suspension or deletion of the account. This thoughtful approach speaks volumes about the level of commitment that the app puts into not only protecting its members but also those who are potentially vulnerable parties who could become victims if left unchecked.

Yubo and NCMEC have partnered to increase parental, caregiver, and teen awareness about cybercrime during online socializing for young people. This collaborative effort by teenage online interactors is a positive step in assuring that necessary measures are being taken to guarantee safe teenage online interactions. We have turned away from prior instances of innocent children being victimized by digital predators, and this collaborative effort will help us progress responsibly into the next digital era.
