Office of the eSafety Commissioner

The Office of the eSafety Commissioner is committed to helping all Australians have safe, positive experiences online.

The Office of eSafety promotes online safety education for Australian young people, parents and educators through our resources and Outreach Program.

They also provide a complaints service for young Australians who experience serious cyberbullying, and for Australians wishing to report illegal online content.

eSafetyWomen is another important arm of our program - empowering Australian women to take control of their online experiences.

At the Office, all resources and services are underpinned by our evidence-based research into internet use, online safety, e-security and other related issues.
