Make Holidays
Safe for Selfies

Parents need to know that the photos they share of treasured moments can be misused. Our “Safe Selfie Campaign” aims to help parents protect their kids’ holiday selfies the same way we inspect their gifts for harmful parts. Holidays are among the highest volume selfie posting periods during the year, which also means they're times when image abuse can spike.

Safeguard Your Family

Our mission is to raise awareness about online image abuse, educate families on how to safeguard their children's digital images, and advocate for the necessary legislative and technological protections required to combat this pervasive issue. Together, we can eliminate online photo abuse and build a better, safer internet for our children.

Cathy Pedrayes, National Spokesperson for P.I.C.

”Research shows more than 1 in 5 Americans is a victim of image abuse, and increases to nearly 1 in 4 for girls 18-30 years old. As parents, it’s concerning to know this is all happening within the “safety” of our children’s smartphones. It is 100% on us to do something about it.”
