The Global Internet Forum to Counter Terrorism (GIFCT) is an industry consortium, established in July 2017, of companies dedicated to disrupting the use of online platforms for use by terrorist groups.
Hash Sharing Consortium
GIFCT operates a database of hashes (digital signatures of images) related to content associated with terrorist groups. While initially restricted to UN designated terrorist groups, this restriction was removed in 2019 to include any terrorist content.
In the first two years, 200,000 pieces of content were added to the database.
Adult website FanCentro filed documents claiming that rival OnlyFans had placed hashes of their performer content on to the GIFCT database in order to damage them commercially.
