COMPUTER giant Microsoft has introduced a “pop-up” warning message for anyone using its Bing search engine to find child porn.

 

It will tell them the content is against the law and provide a link to a counselling service.

Microsoft said it was a strong supporter of “the fight against technology-facilitated child exploitation” and already had a policy of removing links to illegal sites as soon as possible.

The pop-up message will be triggered by terms on a list from the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre.

The centre’s chief executive, Andy Baker, said: “Anything which prevents people accessing indecent images of children and stops more children being harmed can only be a good thing but much more is needed and the industry must play its part and take ownership of this problem.”
