Divulging more details, DIG Nilambari said that users can also access Cyber Dost— a twitter handle of Government of India (GOI), which provides information, updates and alerts regarding the Cyber Crimes. She added that the portal also has a feature called Cyber Safe using which users can verify UPI, Account No. before making any kind of transactions to prevent financial frauds.

She said that the portal is also linked with the Cybercrime Prevention against Women and Children (CCPWC) scheme of GOI which deals with cyber offences against women and children. “Using this feature on the portal, anyone can report offences against women and children,” she added.
