Protect Brazil is a free app that allows everyone to engage in the protection of children and adolescents. It is possible to send reports directly through the app, locate the oversight bodies in the main cities, and also to learn about the different violations.
Complaints are forwarded directly to Dial 100 (Disque 100), - the federal government human rights helpline. The app also receives complaints concerning places without accessibility, internet crimes, and violations related to other vulnerable populations.
The app works on mobile phones and tablets with iOS or Android technology. It is available in Portuguese, English and Spanish. To use it:
