About our SID activities

Promoting trust and safety within video game communities is about creating a more positive, safe and inclusive online experience for all players. This is a shared priority that calls for collective action, which is why we are proud to announce our new Trust and Safety page on the ESA website.

The industry’s multidisciplinary approach to fostering a safer online environment includes using cutting-edge technologies that prevent harm before it happens, parental and player controls to empower users, skilled human oversight to moderate communities, codes of conduct to set player expectations and, above all, a commitment to working together.

What we are doing to create a better internet...

The video game industry has been a leader in player safety for decades and remains committed to collaborating and seeking new and improved methods to protect players online. This way, all players can continue enjoying the fun and safe online environments they deserve. We do this by providing tools for parents and players, developing and utilizing leading technologies and promoting positive play within our games through clear codes of conduct and partnerships within the industry.
