Creating a safe, positive and inclusive online experience for all players is of the utmost importance to the video game industry. Video game publishers and console makers work collaboratively to promote civility, build community and incentivize positive behavior. The industry also works to develop and implement cutting-edge technologies, detection methods and practices to prevent toxic and predatory behavior, while arming players with information and tools to keep their environments as safe and positive as possible.

The video game industry also partners with trusted third parties like the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) to increase our understanding of and engagement on online safety in order to make the internet safer for our community. The industry remains committed to vigilantly seeking and implementing new and improved methods to prevent disruptive behavior. This way, all players can continue enjoying the vibrant, fun and safe online environments they deserve.
