Safer Internet Day 2020

New Zealand has celebrated Safer Internet Day 2020.

The day is held annually around the world on the 11th of February and is designed to encouraging and promoting a better online experience.

More than 50 nations, tens of thousands of companies and millions of people are joining together for a better internet.

In New Zealand, online safety organisation Netsafe is again the official host.

They have held information sessions and produced resources to promote safer use of the Internet.

Netsafe started coordinating Safer Internet Day back in 2014. This year, the largest number of partners since then have pledged to support the event.

Netsafe CEO Martin Cocker says he is overwhelmed with the level of support Safer Internet Day was receiving, and that was growing daily. He says online safety is often considered an issue specific to young people.
