Australian Safer Internet Day Committee - Office of the eSafety Commissioner

About our SID activities

Australia’s eSafety Commissioner supports Safer Internet Day (SID) each year with a national campaign. The campaign includes online safety resources and activities for parents and carers, educators, policy-makers, businesses and community organisations.

We have a dedicated Safer Internet Day web page and offer online safety tips, parent webinars, virtual classrooms, and promotional materials to help spread the word. Some of Australia’s largest companies also use our online safety resources to promote Safer Internet Day through their own networks. 

The Safer Internet Day campaign generates significant media and social media coverage and continues to gain momentum each year. This exposure raises awareness about online safety and helps Australians know where to go for support and advice about being safer online.

What we are doing to support the SID 2023 theme of "Together for a better internet"…

This is why our 2023 campaign is encouraging everyone to Connect. Reflect. Protect. We can connect safely by keeping our apps and devices secure, and by using social media in a positive way. We can reflect by considering how our actions might affect others. And we can protect ourselves and others by taking action – by telling family, friends or colleagues about eSafety and visiting esafety.gov.au for advice and support.

We're encouraging supporters to share video messages on social media, use the campaign assets to promote online safety messages at work and school, and consider how simple actions like Connect.Reflect.Protect can bring about great change.
 

What we are doing to mark the 20th anniversary of Safer Internet Day…

We are asking people to record and upload a video message sharing why it is important to Connect. Reflect. Protect or they can also talk about the changes they hope to see in the next twenty years that will keep people safe online.
