Connect. Reflect. Protect: Safer Internet Day 2023

Safer Internet Day is a global event dedicated to creating a safer online world for everyone. Tuesday, 7 February 2023, marks the 20th Safer Internet Day.

The Safer Internet Day campaign raises awareness about online safety for people of all ages and takes place in 180 countries.

The eSafety Commissioner (eSafety) is the official coordinator of the global Safer Internet Day effort in Australia, and this vital campaign is celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2023 – so it is an excellent time to reflect on the past two decades and look towards the future.

The world is more connected than ever, making online safety awareness even more important.

That’s why the 2023 campaign is encouraging everyone to Connect. Reflect. Protect:

Connect safely and with purpose – by keeping apps and devices secure and using social media positively.

Reflect before we act – by taking a moment to consider how what we do and say online may affect others.

Protect ourselves and others by taking action – by telling family, friends or colleagues about eSafety and how we can help.
