Your Question

Is this service anonymous?


Hi there, welcome to Ask Alex.
Thank you for your question about whether Ask Alex is anonymous.
When you send a question to Alex, the replies are public and not private, so other young people can read them too. We respect everyone’s privacy, so no personal information will ever be shared when responding to your question.
If your question is chosen and published, it will be under one of the subheadings on the Ask Alex page.
If you feel the need to speak to someone urgently, we have a 24-hour Childline Listening service, which is available for every young person up to and including the age of 18.
Just like Alex, nothing is too small or too big to talk to Childline Listening about. You can talk about anything. We will never judge or criticise you; we are here to listen and support you, and your call or chat is confidential – meaning that we would not share it outside of Childline, unless you want us to do so.
Everyone at Childline is here to listen, and we can help you figure out your options. We will never tell you what to do. We are also here to empower, support, and protect young people.
You do not have to have a problem to contact Childline; we are here to listen to anything on your mind. The services are free, and you can contact Childline by phone at 1800 66 66 66 or online through the Live Chat Service on the website
We hope this answers your question. Feel free to contact us anonymously, anytime.
