Three actions to take this Safer Internet Day 2019


1. Start having conversations about online safety with the young people in your life

Research shows that young people are more likely to be harmed by something online, so it’s important that you have conversations with them often and early about ways to stay safe online. It isn’t always easy to know where to begin, so we’ve put together some ideas for conversation starters which you can download below.

2. Do an online profile check-up

One of the simplest things you can do to keep yourself safe online is check in on your online profile privacy settings. If you’re using social media, make sure that you have your privacy settings tight, so that you’re only sharing information with your friends or connections. Check out our advice for keeping your social media profiles private below.

Take some time out to share something positive online to celebrate Safer Internet Day this year. We’ve put together some ideas of things you can share below!




A Parent's Guide to Instagram

Instagram and Netsafe have partnered on A Parent’s Guide to Instagram: New Zealand Edition 2019.

Although young people are often digitally savvy, they’re still developing. They may need your guidance on appropriate online behaviours and how to navigate challenges. As a parent you don’t need to be an expert in technology, but being familiar with the technology that young people are using and the challenges that they may experience is a great start. This guide will give you that insight and prepare you to give your kids the guidance when they need it.
