Prohibit convicted sex offenders changing their name or using social media

Petition Details

I want the Government to prohibit convicted sex offenders from changing their name, or being able to use any social media. At present it is too easy for sex offenders to hide their identity and make contact with potential victims on social media.

Additional Information

Preventing convicted sex offenders from changing their name or being able to use any social media should help reduce the risk of convicts going on to offend again.


If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
