The internet is a place like no other. It can be an amazing, expansive space for learning and connecting with people from all over the world. However, it can also be a scary and dangerous place. It’s important to keep your kids safe online and know the risks that come with having access to the internet. Safer Internet Day aims to teach you how to do this and be aware of browsing safely online.
What Is Safer Internet Day?
Safer Internet Day is a day set aside to promote safer and more responsible internet use. This year, the campaign’s focus was on online bullying. With all the videos, pictures, and social media accounts coming out every day, it’s not hard to see how this has become an issue.
The History of Safer Internet Day
Safer Internet Day began in 2004 with the launch of the E.U. Safer Internet Plus Programme, a joint initiative from the European Commission, Council of Europe, and United Nations to promote safer and more responsible use of the internet.
Safer Internet Day aims to encourage people and organizations to take part in an online safety campaign that promotes responsible internet usage. The day also highlights key issues like cyberbullying, sexting, and privacy concerns using the internet. Since its introduction in 2004, Safer Internet Day has grown into a worldwide event celebrated by countries across the globe every year on February 6.
When Is Safer Internet Day?
Safer Internet Day is an international awareness day to help educate people about navigating the internet safely. It will take place on February 9. It’s important to remember that the internet is not a safe space for kids, and you want to make sure they are educated about what is online.

How Is Safer Internet Day Celebrated?
Safer Internet Day is celebrated annually on February 9. Safer Internet Day aims to encourage people, especially children and teens, to take care online. It’s important to be aware of what it means to browse safely online–it’s not just about avoiding scams or malware. This means teaching kids how to use social media responsibly, teaching them how to look out for themselves when they’re talking with other people online, and teaching them about creating healthy relationships online (both in-person and over the internet). Here, a good rule of thumb is, “if you wouldn’t say it offline, don’t say it online.”
Why We Love Safer Internet Day
We love Safer Internet Day because it’s an annual campaign that has the power to change the world. This day celebrates being safe, having fun, and participating responsibly in the digital world. It provides valuable resources about internet safety and cyberbullying prevention. And it promotes how to avoid scams, phishing attacks, and content that may be inappropriate for kids. It’s a powerful movement that can help you proactively protect your family from threats online. On Safer Internet Day, people are encouraged to become active participants in creating a safer internet community by engaging with this important cause. The Digital Leaders Council (DLC) is excited to take part in the online safety campaign again this year by educating parents about keeping their children safe online during their daily activities on social media sites like Instagram or Facebook. We want to empower parents to make informed decisions about what their kids are doing on the internet.
This year, Safer Internet Day is taking place on Tuesday, February 9. All around the world, people are coming together to celebrate online safety. This day is important because it’s about raising awareness of children’s potential risks when they go online. There are many ways to celebrate Safer Internet Day. A good way to start is by talking to your kids about the risks they might encounter when they go online.
