Netsafe is an incorporated society with members from across the country. Our members represent organisations with an interest in building confidence in using digital technology. Becoming a Netsafe member gives you and your organisation an opportunity to contribute to advancing online safety in New Zealand.

Online safety is an important topic, and one that is rapidly growing as the use of digital technology increases.

Membership is free, easy to apply for and it gives you and your organisation the opportunity to play a part in the development of online safety and the use of digital tech right here in New Zealand.
