Most of us use the Internet on an almost-daily basis and have no difficulty. We log in, take care of our business, often make purchases or other financial transactions, and think nothing more of it.
Until something happens. Then we wonder why someone doesn't do something to make the Internet a safer place for us.
This year, February 6, someone is doing something about it. Called Safer Internet Day, the campaign originated in 2012 and calls upon young people, parents, caregivers, teachers, social workers, law enforcement, businesses, lawmakers, and beyond, to make the Internet a safer place for everyone.
Not only is the purpose of Safer Internet Day (SID) to create a safer Internet, but also an Internet that empowers everyone to use technology wisely, respectfully, and creatively.
