Safer Internet Day (SID)

Over the years, Safer Internet Day (SID) has become a landmark event in the online safety calendar. Safer Internet Day (SID) is organised by Insafe in February of each year to promote safer and more responsible use of online technology and mobile phones, especially among children and young people across the world.

Starting as an initiative of the EU SafeBorders project in 2004 and taken up by the Insafe network as one of its earliest actions in 2005, Safer Internet Day has grown beyond its traditional geographic zone and is now celebrated in more than 130 countries worldwide, and across all continents.

As part of the wider Better Internet for Kids platform, a dedicated SID mini-site provides information on SID activities across the globe and resources for classroom use.
