Tansa has achieved new results with "Uploaded and Re-Uploaded" which began a series in November 2022.
In this series, Tansa has been reporting on the "Album Collection," an app that illegally sells images of child sexual abuse and voyeuristic images of women, to stop the damage.
On December 15, 2023, Tansa sent an email to Apple CEO Tim Cook asking him to withdraw the app from the App Store, and Apple removed Album Collection from its App Store three days later on December 18.
Also, Album Collection announced that it will end its service on January 31, 2024.
To reach this point, we have conducted cross-border coverage, including a trip to South Korea to report on a similar case and a trip to Singapore to track down the app's operator.
We hold the app operators and Tech Giants accountable for the growing number of sex crimes on the Internet.
Our purpose in reporting is to prevent others from suffering the same damage.
