Baited pages

Baited pages are private profiles set up across social media that can only be accessed by invitation. These pages are targeting children and young people with a requirement for the person to submit naked pictures of themselves or peers. These images are then shared.

More information about eSafety is available for children and young people, parents and carers and professionals.

For more information on how to make reports regarding website content, and also whether particular content does breaches relevant terms and conditions,  please visit the UK Safer Internet Centre. The helpline provides information to professionals working with children and young people to keep them safe online.
