Cyber Safety

At iiNet we think the Internet is a world of fun, but we also think that it should be safe. Our Cyber Safety portal is your home for helpful hints and tips to keep yourself and your family safe online.

You'll find our latest Cyber Safety blogposts and teaching resources here, which have been specifically designed to teach our kids how to stay safe online and what they should be on the lookout for.

We also host in-house Cyber Safety sessions for school kids that includes a tour of our corporate office. Contact us via the email address at the bottom of this page if you're interested in coming for a visit.
