Safer Internet Day is celebrated globally in February each year to promote the safe and positive use of digital technology for children and young people, and to inspire a national conversation about using technology responsibly, respectfully, critically, and creatively.
This is what last year told us:
- 77% of young people have spent more time playing online games and apps during the pandemic than ever before.
- 56% of young people have chatted with people they don’t know, within an online game, over the past year.
- 41% of young people have blocked or reported another user because of their behaviour
