Barkly Square, Ballarat East

Safer Internet Day is a global event dedicated to creating a safer online world for everyone.

Tuesday 7 February 2023 marks the 20th Safer Internet Day and the world is more connected than ever before, making online safety awareness even more important.

We are joining the eSafety Commissioner to support Safer Internet Day and we encourage you to get involved and Connect. Reflect. Protect.

  • Connect safely and with purpose – by keeping apps and devices secure and using social media in positive ways.
  • Reflect before we act – by taking a moment to consider how what we do and say online may affect others.
  • Protect ourselves and others by taking action – tell family, friends or colleagues about eSafety and visit for advice, support and to report online abuse.

By sharing the Connect. Reflect. Protect. message, we can work towards making every day a Safer Internet Day.
