    TEMPO.CO, London – Google has pledged to prevent sexual harassment towards children. Google's chairman, Eric Schmidt wrote on Daily Mail regarding internet pornography, claiming that Google has taken several measures in relation to the issue.

    "We've fine-tuned Google Search to prevent links to child sexual abuse material from appearing in our results," he said.

    He added that if a user enters keywords related to harassment elements, the search will return with zero result.

    Schmidt also revealed that Google has developed a breakthrough technology that will allow illegal videos to be 'tagged' so that all duplicate copies can be removed across the internet.

    "And while society will never wholly eliminate such depravity, we should do everything in our power to protect children from harm," Schmidt wrote.

    He said that in the last three months, Google has placed more than 200 staffs to work on developing the technology to overcome child sexual harassment.

    Daily Mail said that the new Google technology will put a unique identification mark on child harassment videos so that copies can be easily identified. Google offers to share this technology with other Internet companies.
