Pentanet.GG champions Safer Internet Day 2020




On Tuesday 11 February 2020, Pentanet.GG is pleased to be supporting the work of Australia’s eSafety Commissioner by spreading online safety messages and promoting the positive use of digital technology.


Safer Internet Day is an opportunity to raise awareness about the role we can all play in creating a better and safer internet for our community.


Celebrated in over 150 countries, the Safer Internet Day theme is: ‘Together for a better internet’. We are encouraging all Australians to start the chat to help improve online safety within their communities, and make every day a Safer Internet Day.




This year we are supporting Safer Internet Day by pledging towards a safer internet, and we encourage you to join in! Download the pledge document here, print it and take a picture of you with your pledge. Don't forget to tag in Pentanet.GG on socials!


Help spread the word and raise awareness. The first step to a better internet is to talk about the potential risks and ways to avoid them. You can host a Safer Internet Day activity or simply start a conversation in your community about coming ‘together for a better internet’.To find out how to get involved and stay safe online visit esafety.gov.au/safer-internet-day
