Empowering Women and Children: How to Report Cybercrime Anonymously

Here’s a step-by-step guide to reporting a cybercrime anonymously in India, with a reminder to also report the incident on the platform where it happened. And remember, talking to your parents can be a big help—they’re always there for you.

Steps for Anonymous Reporting:

  1. Visit the National Cyber Crime Reporting Portal:

  2. Choose the Right Option:

    • Once you’re on the site, look for “Report Women/Child Related Crime” and click on it. This section is specially designed to help girls and women.
  3. Anonymous Reporting:

    • Don’t worry about your identity being revealed. When you select the option for women/child-related crime, you’ll be taken to a form where you can share what happened without giving your name. It’s all about keeping you safe and your details private.
  4. Report on the Platform:

  5. Fill in the Details:

    • There will be a form where you can describe the incident. Try to be as clear and detailed as possible so they understand what you’re dealing with.
    • You can also upload any evidence you have, like screenshots, chat logs, or URLs. Think of it as gathering all the puzzle pieces to help them see the whole picture.
  6. Submit Your Report:

    • Once you’ve filled out the form and uploaded your evidence, just hit the submit button. They’ll take it from there, and your identity will stay confidential.

A Few Extra Tips:

  • Confidentiality is Key: The portal is designed to keep your identity safe and sound, so you can feel secure in sharing your story.
  • Be Detailed: Since you’re reporting anonymously, try to include as much detail as you can. It helps them understand and investigate better.
  • Need a Hand?: If you’re ever unsure or need some guidance, you can call the Cyber Crime Helpline at 155260. They’re there to help and can give you advice on how to report the crime anonymously.

A Little Extra Advice:

Even though you have the option to report anonymously, it’s usually best to take your parents into confidence. They love you and want to support you, especially when you’re dealing with something as serious as a cybercrime. They can provide comfort, advice, and help you navigate the situation. You’re not alone in this—lean on your family for support and strength.
