Google was included on the 2020 Dirty Dozen List for “serving as a party and facilitator” to sexual exploitation, specifically by enabling school children to access pornography on Google Chromebooks and allowing pedophiles to network on YouTube.

NCOSE thanked Google for changing its algorithms to “decrease exposure to hardcore pornography for users looking up innocent, unrelated, or scientific terms in Google Images.” Additionally, Google “made advertising policy changes to move their prohibited ‘Adult’ content to the ‘Inappropriate’ content section” and banned “ads promoting prostitution—including ‘compensated dating’ (i.e. ‘sugar dating.’)”
