The Walt Disney Company
About our SID activities
We are proud to support Safer Internet Day, which represents a unique opportunity to promote user awareness about online safety. We will be supporting SID on our corporate website and in collaboration with our industry partners.
What we are doing to create a better internet…
We believe the digital world should be a safe space for kids and families to engage, learn, explore, and express themselves. At Disney, we are committed to promoting safety within our digital platforms, giving parents and caregivers the tools to effectively manage their family’s engagement with our content and choose the experience that’s right for them.
Our streaming platform, Disney+, provides a set of robust parental control options, including the ability to establish individual viewer profiles with corresponding rating settings. Within Disney+, we also offer a “Junior Mode” experience, which is the space for our youngest audiences to engage with positive content that has been purposefully curated for them.
We partner with industry leaders and join with industry coalitions to promote user awareness of online safety and digital wellness.
We also maintain a digital wellness grant portfolio supporting NGOs working on pressing digital issues that affect the safety, health and success of children across the globe. In 2023, we supported 20 organisations around the world, funding educational programs, peer-to-peer trainings, youth advisory councils, film competitions on online safety, educator training, development of resources, workshops and activities to promote mindful digital use and online safety, as well as reporting portals, chatlines and hotlines to assist children in crisis.
The Walt Disney Company is committed to creating inclusive and positive online experiences that audiences of all ages can enjoy together. We recognise the promise of technology for children’s education, expression, inclusion, and entertainment as our digital lives continue to expand rapidly.
