Safer Internet Day

Safer Internet Day

Tuesday 9th February


Safer Internet Day is an event, organised by the UK Safer Internet Centre, which aims to promote safe, responsible and positive use of internet technology. 


This year in the UK, Safer Internet Day explores reliability online. The internet has an amazing range of information and opportunities online, but how do we separate fact from fiction?


Safer Internet Day will be celebrated globally with the slogan: Together for a better internet.


For our children, who are still very young, we also aim to equip our children to be able to use the internet safely in our ever changing and evolving digital world. Many children are already savvy at using digital devices and so it is important that they are supported and know how to do so safely.

Top 5 Tips for internet safety


Staying safe on the internet is a vital part of modern technology use. Here are 5 top tips for aiding you and your children in this process:


  • Monitor your child's internet use and keep a track of their browsing history.
  • Make sure you choose strong passwords for your secure information.
  • Keep your privacy settings high to ensure your security.
  • Ensure you're up to date with all the latest security software.
  • Remember to be as vigilant on your mobile as your desktop or laptop.
  • Don't click on links you don't trust.
