  • The Michigan Child Protection Registry is a free program offered by the State of Michigan. The Registry is designed to keep adult-oriented electronic messages such as pornography, alcohol, tobacco and gambling from reaching children.

    The Michigan Child Protection Registry allows you to register your family's e-mail addresses, mobile phone numbers, instant messenger IDs and fax numbers. When you sign up for the Registry, marketers who send adult messages are required by law to remove your registered addresses from their lists. If you continue to receive adult-oriented messages after you have been registered for 30 days, you may file a complaint by visiting the registry's website.

    To register your family for this free program, or for more information, visit: https://www.protectmichild.com/
