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. In a world that is more connected than ever, online safety awareness has never been more important.
Technology has evolved dramatically in the past two decades and the benefits have been huge. These developments have also exposed us to many risks with real-world impacts, making online safety awareness even more important.
We are committed to seeing people not only find their place in healthy communities but flourishing in safe environments. That includes online spaces. Therefore, Hillsong Church is 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 – by telling family, friends or colleagues about eSafety and how we can help.
By doing these simple things, we can work towards making every day a Safer Internet Day.
Hillsong Safe Church has tips and information to help parents to assist in providing online safety for their children, see link here.
