The world celebrated Safer Internet Day 2019


Today is the world’s Safer Internet Day, popularly abbreviated as SID.

The event observed on every 5th February purposed to encourage a better internet usage and consumption.

Themed: ‘Together for a better internet’, this year’s SID hinges on encouraging the development of four critical skills among internet users which will consequently create a better internet environment.

The four skills, dubbed the 4Rs are; respect, responsibility, reasoning and resilience.

SID is celebrated globally in 130 countries, and is coordinated by the joint Insafe/Inhope Network, with the support of the European Commission, and National Safer Internet Centers across Europe.
