ISLAMABAD: For helping women to safely navigate cyberspace, Meta — the parent organisation of Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp and other subsidiaries — has launched two new initiatives in Pakistan, the Online Safety Guide and StopNCII (non-consensual intimate images).
Meta has issued the safety advisory in English and Urdu with the hope that it would boost digital literacy and responsible online behaviour among the users, resulting in a safe online space for women to connect and express themselves without fear and restraints.
Meta has announced that the safety guide is part of the company’s efforts to equip and prepare women for the challenges of the modern digital world.
Millions of people in Pakistan use Meta platforms to connect and pursue shared interests.
