Celebrate Safer Internet Day on Feb. 5

ConnectSafely.org is hosting Safer Internet Day on Feb. 5, 2019. “You can’t have privacy without security, and you can’t truly be safe if your data is at risk,” a post promoted by ConnectSafely.org notes. “But even the most sophisticated technology can’t fully protect us. We also need to be aware of what we post, where we click, how we use our app and device privacy settings and how we treat ourselves and others online.” Safer Internet Day is also about celebrating how using technology can improve people’s lives.

There is an event on Feb. 5 at Google’s Seattle headquarters that will be livestreamed. It features March For Our Lives co-organizer Cameron Kasky in conversation with Brittan Heller, founder of the Anti-Defamation League’s Center for Technology and Society; a panel of Seattle high school students and executives from Google, Facebook, and Microsoft; and a panel of executives from Oculus and Google and Eva Hoerth from the Virtual World Society, who will talk about the possibilities and challenges of virtual reality. There are also events going on at schools across the U.S.

For those who can’t attend an event, there are quick guides on internet safety that ConnectSafely.org recently translated into Spanish, with more languages coming soon. Everyone can use the day to talk about how to be safer online. Parents are encouraged to talk to their children about their use of technology and to think about how they model good online habits.

For more information, read the post.
