R;pple provides an extra level of safety for your family’s online activities

R;pple is an interceptive tool designed to present a visual prompt when a person searches for harmful keywords or phrases relating to the topic of self-harm or suicide. These phrases include any words or terminology which have been identified as displaying potentially damaging online content.

Our intervention technique catches people when they are most vulnerable, and helps redirect them to immediate support sources.

We have a database of keywords and phrases configured within the tool relating to suicide and/or self-harm. This database is constantly evolving to recognise the changes in language caused by culture and trends.


R;pple monitors when a user searches for harmful content via online web searches, forums or video sharing sites using one of the keywords. We do not track personal data or utilise the content of non-harmful searching in any way.


Harmful searches are intercepted and the R;pple pop-up is calmly presented. The user is guided through a breathing exercise and a moment of pause. Helplines and mental health resources are recommended alongside a message of hope.

“I just wanted to say what an amazing project this is. My daughter attempted to take her own life last year but thankfully she is still here with us. In the depth of the loss you are experiencing, you have managed to promote something to help others. Such an amazing idea.”

"I lost my son at 20 years of age to suicide and I too discovered that he had researched methods on the Internet. Your ingenious app will throw a lifeline to those who are at risk and intervene in a positive way. This is the most uplifting news I have had in a long time and for that I thank you whole heartedly"

“Without this tool, it is quite possible that within a couple of clicks, an incredibly distressed individual, will be able to access content that not only demonstrates means of dying by suicide, but encouragement and detailed instruction of how to do so.”

“As a mother of someone who has been at that point in their life, I can’t thank you enough for the work you are doing and the lives that have changed because of it. Knowing there is a tool like this out there so no one gets a call to give them the worst news of their lives is amazing, and I am in awe.”
