Pedophiles will now get warnings online

  • Google and Microsoft are now a team in assuring that pedophiles don't get illegal results online but get warned instead. 

    Google said it has targeted search terms, which are related to child sexual abuse and these 100,000 targeted terms will deliver warnings. Reports suggest that the company put over 200 people "to work developing new, state-of-the-art technology to tackle the problem."

    "We've fine-tuned Google search to prevent links to child sexual abuse material from appearing in our results," Google chief Eric Schmidt said. 

    Although, this change has only been made for English language, the company plans on doing the same for another 150 of them. Schmidt mentioned that Microsoft's technology, which helps to detect and delete illegal photos has been helpful. 

    This announcement by Schmidt came only days after there was a huge child porn bust, leading to the arrests of 348 people.
