SAFER INTERNET PT AN-HL: Portuguese Safer Internet Plus

Portuguese Safer Internet plus (PSIplus) aims to continue the Portuguese Safer Internet (PSI) project objectives and continue to develop in Portugal a culture of awareness and social contribution to report illegal contents in the Internet, in order to minimize as far as possible the negative aspects of the generalization of Internet usage. The awareness node will continue to educate and inform children, parents and teachers how to protect themselves from the dangers of the Internet, as a preventive and awareness action, and the hotline will continue to be a resource for citizens to report illegal or harmful contents. In more detail:


1. Awareness Centre
As an awareness centre the projects and actions developed under the objective to inform and educate citizens, not only in what concerns to the type and nature of dangers underlying the use of the Internet, but also to provide the means and instruments available to prevent those same dangers. The PSIplus project is ambitious in these objectives as it will continue to implement actions and communication strategies in order to achieve as diverse target groups as possible.

2. Hotline
At a European and International level, the hotline service will continue to build its know how upon the experience of other hotlines, either by communicating to police force illegal content hosted in Portugal, or to inform other hotlines of illegal and harmful content hosted abroad. It will essentially continue to be another resource of Inhope to achieve their objectives. With the project conclusion, Portugal will have a fully operational system that will try to achieve four main objectives: 1) Citizens to report illegal or harmful content (identifying themselves or in anonymity); 2) An analytical team to study and produce denouncing reports; 3) A light communication process to report legally the content to police forces; 4) A commitment with Internet Service Providers to block content until judicial analysis is made and to adapt, if necessary, their common acceptable usage condition objectives.
