Book a free eSafety with Be Connected presentation

The Office of the eSafety Commissioner is hosting free webinar presentations to help older Australians stay safe online. It’s our way of helping the 4 million older Australians that are keen to improve their digital literacy, but want help addressing online safety concerns*.

We will be offering presentations on two topics. Bookings are limited so don’t miss out!

Safer online shopping & banking

For many Australians, a connected lifestyle includes the convenience of online shopping and banking, however, privacy and security concerns can stop older Australians from enjoying the same experience. In this 50-minute webinar you’ll learn:

  • how to safely buy and pay for things online
  • how to do every day banking safely online
  • tips on how to use public Wi-Fi safely.
