The Internet Watch Foundation (IWF), a British charity, is joining forces with Facebook, Google and Twitter in an effort to remove images of child sexual abuse from the Web, reports The Independent.

The move is intended to prevent images being uploaded in the first place, as well as users finding them by accident. IWF will share lists of file hashes of such images with companies so that they can track and remove them automatically from their services.
