Online safety research

Ofcom is the regulator for online safety in the UK. So, it's important for us to understand what people do online, how they can be exposed to harm and how it affects them.

Our research looks at specific aspects of online safety, particularly areas that aren’t as well understood or explored. It covers issues like illegal and harmful content, and the protection of children.

Here’s our latest work in this area:
