The mobile application BanHate is available for free in all major app stores. It is a quick, easy, unbureaucratic and, above all, anonymous way to report hate postings or hate crimes via smartphone or tablet.

Especially in the social media, the inhibition threshold seems to be scarcely present when it comes to discrimination. To report a hate posting in a correctly documented way was so far a rather inconvenient undertaking. With BanHate, the reporting now works with just a few clicks: The discriminating hate posting is documented with the discrimination grounds, screenshot and link and then automatically forwarded to the antidiscrimination centre Steiermark. There the postings are examined legally and in the case of discrimination reported to the respective Provider with the request to delete it. Depending on the content of the posting, a report to the police is possible, too.

More information on BanHate is available in German.
