The internet is used by some people to promote terrorism and violent extremism and corrupt individuals who are vulnerable to radicalisation.
Some examples of illegal terrorist or extremist content include:
- speeches or essays calling for racial or religious violence
- videos of violence with messages of glorification or praise for the attackers
- chat forums with postings calling for people to commit acts of terrorism or violent extremism
- messages intended to stir up hatred against any religious or ethnic group
- bomb-making instructions
You can now report online terrorist content you think might be illegal, or which you find offensive, to a specialist police department by visiting www.direct.gov.uk/reportingonlineterrorism
