A 35-year-old Queensland man has been charged after allegedly sharing child abuse material using the encrypted application Wickr.
The Brisbane Joint Anti Child Exploitation Team arrested the man at his Deception Bay home, north of Brisbane, on Thursday.
Two mobile phones, a tablet containing child abuse material, and two hard drives were seized for further forensic analysis.
The arrest comes after a report from the United States National Center for Missing and Exploited Children warned the Australian Centre to Counter Child Exploitation that someone , suspected to be in Queensland, was uploading child abuse material online.
The 35-year-old man has been charged with using a carriage service to access, transit and possess child abuse material.
