The best way to mitigate risk is to stop it before it happens!

The STOPit solutions are available to schools, universities, workplaces and governments around the world.

STOPit provides valuable services to administrators including monitoring their incidents, content about issues and resolutions, training and promotion services, and investigation tools to help get in front of issues and manage risks.
STOPit Founder Todd Schobel was driving home from work on a normal day when a story on the radio changed his life forever. It was the tragic story of Amanda Todd, a victim of online predation and the cruel and relentless taunting by her peers, who took her own life at just 15 years old. Amanda had shared her story via flashcards in a YouTube video that caught the world’s attention. Overcome with a sense of urgency, Todd was charged into action.
Todd believed the key to helping people like Amanda was to empower them to use the same technology that was inflicting hurt to ask for help. In that moment, STOPit was born.
What began as an anonymous app to report cyberbullying is now transforming the way people report and prevent all varieties of inappropriate conduct. In thousands of locations around the globe, STOPit has become a catalyst for cultural transformation, positively impacting behavior to create safer communities.
I see STOPit as a major tool for change.
I see STOPit as a major tool for change. Our reaction time to incidents has significantly improved and all new incidents are addressed by an adult in under 2 minutes. Additionally, the deterrent effect of the program was powerful and evident immediately…Overall, STOPit functions as a security blanket for us and ensures we are leveraging the latest technology.
