The problem with cyberbullying is that information remains online for a long time and can be difficult to remove. New EU data protection rules introduced a ‘right to be forgotten’ that allows victims to request the erasure of their personal data.

Europe is also funding action on the ground to prevent violence against women, children and young people (including online).

Each national centre operates a helpline, providing advice and assistance for children and teenagers confronted with harmful online content or conduct.
