According to its annual report, the Internet watch foundation says it is finding more images of child sexual abuse than ever before.
It found more than 78,000 web addresses containing child sexual abuse in 2017, up from more than 57,000 in 2016.
Charities actively seek and remove these images from the web and respond to reports they receive from the public.
It says it has handled more than 80,000 reports of abuse.
In addition, the number of “fake” sites on the site has increased, and the illegal content on the site is shown only to those who have accessed it through specific channels.
This means that by clicking on a series of ads and pop-up Windows, the site they log on is completely different from the way the web page is displayed, if the address is typed directly into the browser.
These sites often ask for payment to see more abuse.
The number of people found in 2017 was 2,909, up from 1,572 last year.
Professional software
The Internet watch foundation began its own search in 2015 and responded to the report.
Susie Hargreaves OBE, chief executive of the Internet watch foundation, said criminals were “getting smarter”.
“This involves the increasing use of hidden digital pathways by criminals to stop law enforcement agencies and hot lines from around the world from testing these criminal websites,” she said in a statement.
The NSPCC says children’s charities say fake websites and dark networks – which can only be searched by professional software – have contributed to the growth of the crime.
“A representative said:” the seriousness of the problem and complexity with the technology and rapid evolution, it is not possible simply solve the problem, we need a comprehensive strategy to prevent potential offenders. ”

An online retailer in the us has been lambasted for promoting a penis extension in a video game played by children.
The advertising standards authority (ASA), the UK regulator, said Wish.com had acted “irresponsibly” and had to ensure that its advertisements were properly positioned at the appropriate age in the future.
It was the third time in five months that the SAN francisco-based company had violated the rules.
In each case, it didn’t respond.
The ASA’s power to punish criminals is limited, but it told the BBC it would “continue to put pressure on Wish.com if necessary”.
The latest ruling relates to an AD released on November 26th.
It shows an animated picture of a penis with the second animation of the strap being applied.
Members of the public reported seeing images in two ethically-themed apps: Zynga’s Crazy Cake Swap and Ketchapp’s 2048.
Both have Pegi 3 levels, which means they are rated by European video rating agencies as suitable for all ages.
In addition, the AD appears in the TV Remote app Peel Smart Remote.
Ketchapp said it didn’t think it should be responsible for the ads in its software, but added that it had raised the age score of all its games to respond to complaints.
