    Pathfinder Labs are proud to have been part of a deterrence solution for people who are trying to access material that promotes the sexual exploitation of children. Working with MindGeek and Home Care Medical, Pathfinder Labs worked to create connections and develop interventions for people searching for material connected to problematic and/or harmful sexual behaviour.

    As the Covid-19 continues to disrupt our ‘once’ daily routine of work and school, one of the real negative impacts we have observed from the pandemic is the increase in online offending. One of the most prevalent areas that offenders are ‘hunting for their prey’ is on live streaming platforms.
