Safer Internet Day 9 February 2010

Safer Internet Day 2010 is coming up on February 9th. The Cyprus Safer Internet Center - Cyberethics, like every year is celebrating this day with many awareness events during that week. The theme of this year's Safer Internet Day is "Think before you post", since data protection is one of our main concerns we encourage Internet users to be extra careful on what they publish or upload online.

Cyprus Safer Internet Helpline - Our operators can now help you via online chat

The Cyprus Safer Internet Helpline has now implemented an online chat applet on its website which allows you to chat with our operators. The applet functions in a manner similar to many popular chat applications like Skype or MSN Messenger. We would like to stress that all messages sent by users via the applet are entirely safe and anonymous.

The Helpline's 7000-0-116 telephone line and the online chat operate between 8pm and 9pm every day.
