The Brazilian Safer Internet Day commission work in different areas to promote educational resources and tips that can be adopted for all to profit the good resources available online. To increase digital citizenship we must strengthen our efforts to educate and prevent cybercrimes below just fight against then. The Internet isn't dangerous itself and we have to promote the opportunities and its potential for all ages, specially for children, working on rights and responsibilities.
