Niantic joins the Tech Coalition

January 05, 2023

Last June, we shared our commitment and efforts to combat child sexual abuse and exploitation online. We adopted cutting-edge technology, such as Safer, developed by Thorn, we joined the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) in their battle against online child sexual abuse imagery, and engaged with key partners such as NCMEC. To further our commitment to aligning and collaborating with partners on this issue, today we are proud and excited to announce that Niantic has joined the Tech Coalition. The Tech Coalition is an alliance of global tech companies who have committed to tackle online Child Sexual Exploitation and Abuse through knowledge and information sharing, the engagement of external stakeholders, research, and the innovation and adoption of new technologies. Our membership in this Coalition will magnify our efforts to keep our community safe within our games and products, and enable us to work with our colleagues across the tech industry to protect children online.
