What is Safer Internet Day?


Safer Internet Day is a global initiative to raise awareness of online safety issues.

The Online Safety Commission leads the initiative in Fiji. We educate people about online safety risks, like online abuse, how to be safe online and where to go for help.








Why is it Important? 

We use the internet in almost every aspect of our lives, so it’s important for everyone to know about online safety.

Safer Internet Day is a great opportunity for workplaces, community organizations, schools, industry, government and families to promote online safety education and the benefits of being safe online.

Our goal is for everyone to be informed about online safety, understand how to report online abuse and actively contribute to a safer online environment – that’s why we need your support.

We encourage you to join the global initiative that unites communities, families, schools and organizations so that together, we can create safer online spaces.




SID 2024 

Over the years, SID has evolved into a significant event in the online safety calendar. It serves as a platform to address various emerging online issues and concerns, ranging from cyberbullying to social networking to digital identity.


This year’s topic of discussion will be on “Building a Digital Future: Nurturing Safe Spaces for Children, Empowering Youth, and Guiding Parents in the Online World”. The event aims to target children, parents, and young people by bringing together representatives from government stakeholders, internet service providers, law enforcement agencies, universities, NGOs, and independent bodies. Additionally, two widely used platforms from Australia will also be present at this landmark event in Fiji.
