Safer Internet Day is a day designated for people and organizations to help make the online world safer for young people. This year, Safer Internet Day is celebrated on February 11, 2020.

The BC RCMP encourages families and adults to start the conversation with young people and children about internet safety. It is important for young people to be aware of the risks associated with sharing their pictures and personal information when interacting online.

There are many ways to practice being safe online. The BC RCMP offers several safety tips to ensure you and any children in your life have the information you need to develop secure online habits.

Tips for parents - It’s important for you as a parent to be aware of your teen’s digital life, and to work with him/her on setting boundaries, acting responsibly, and staying safe online.

What is sexting? These types of messages are intended only for one person; however, the sender has little control over these messages becoming public.
