Priti Patel, Home Secretary 

The internet can be a fantastic place for learning, entertainment and connecting with people. But it is also used by dangerous people to spread misleading content or exploit children and young people.

It’s fantastic to see so many organisations from across the UK come together on Safer Internet Day to raise awareness of these dangers and promote a safer use of digital technology.

As all our children are spending more and more time online, I am firmly committed to supporting this global initiative and making the UK the safest place to be online through our ground-breaking Online Safety Bill.
