Anti-terrorist Hotline

United for our security

The Bundesamt für Verfassungsschutz (BfV) is tasked with countering terrorism and contributing to the security and the peaceful coexistence of all people in Germany.

Security and freedom are indispensable pillars of our society, and they concern all of us - the citizens as well as the security agencies. We can fulfil our task only with your support. Particularly Islamist-motivated terrorism is currently threatening our liberal society.

Support us and contact us confidentially, if

  • you are aware of planned acts of violence or terrorist attacks,

  • you know individuals who are involved in such planning,

  • terror and violence are promoted in your environment,

  • you notice that individuals in your environment radicalise themselves.

This information might be of great importance to us and possibly save lives. The hotline is an instrument to counter terrorism. Please do not misuse it to denounce citizens who wish to live out their faith, even if it seems unfamiliar to you.

Please contact us at:
phone: +49(0)221/792-3366
email: HiT@bfv.bund.de

Our hotline can be contacted round the clock. Assistance in Turkish or Arabic is possible from 9:00 to 15:00 hrs Mondays to Fridays.
