eSafety undertakes research to ensure our programs and resources are based on evidence. We support, encourage, conduct and evaluate research about online safety for all Australians.
Building Australian adults’ confidence and resilience online
This research report explores adult Australians’ digital confidence, their perceptions of online risk and highlights their online safety information needs. It also looks at their views on Safety by Design.
This research report is the result of collaboration between the eSafety Commissioner in Australia, Netsafe in New Zealand and United Kingdom’s SWGfL as part of the European Social and Emotional Learning for Mutual Awareness (SELMA) project.
eSafety acknowledges the traditional custodians of country throughout Australia and their continuing connection to land, waters and community. We pay our respects to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, and to elders both past and present. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples should be aware that this website may contain images of people who have since passed away.
