To celebrate Safer Internet Day 2018, Google, in collaboration with the National Film and Video Censors Board (NFVCB), has organised an interactive programme for over 150 students from 10 public schools and five private schools across the Federal Capital Territory of Nigeria, Abuja.

Google’s Policy & Government Relations Manager, Titi Akinsanmi, said: “This year’s event, themed, ’Create, connect and share respect: A better internet starts with you’, reflects our aim to train and inform active internet users in Nigeria about the dangers of online technologies and how users can keep themselves safe online.”

“Protecting online users is one of our top priorities this year, which is why we are partnering with necessary stakeholders to talk about simple steps that can be taken to help people stay safe and secure while surfing the web whether on a personal computer, tablet or smartphone,” she stated.

On Safer Internet Day, which is held every February 6, Google urged users to check out the Safety Centre site, which contains information about the web – including tools from Google to help keep you and your family safe online.
