Tips on how to stay safe online during the COVID-19 pandemic

Safer Internet Day 2021

On Safer Internet Day 2021 the world came together with a shared vision of making online experiences better for everyone.

eSafety celebrated the day as one of the most important events of the year. We ran Safer Internet Day webinars for school students, parents and carers. We also released new resources that help Australians 'start the chat' about online safety.

You can still help spread online safety by using and sharing the resources listed on this page and throughout our website any day of the year.

You can also sign up to our newsletter to get the latest online safety information and advice direct to your inbox.
