A special, globally-recognized day of Internet safety, Safer Internet Day serves as a call to action for everyone to play a part in creating a better Internet for all, especially the youngest users out there—students. It’s also an invitation for people of all ages to join in and engage with each other online in a respectful way to ensure a better digital experience for everyone using the Internet.

“While students may think they are tech savvy, it is critical that they are aware of the dangers of learning and playing in a digital environment. Having open conversations with them about making smart, safe online decisions helps prevent some of the negative consequences that may occur in cyberspace,” said Keith Oelrich, CEO, “Safer Internet Day is a great opportunity for us to educate students and help raise awareness on February 6 and beyond.”
