While there are many benefits to engaging online, children are also vulnerable to risks such as cyber bullying, grooming, sexting, privacy breaches, identity theft and exposure to inappropriate content.
In order to keep children safe online, it is important to equip them with the skills to identify and manage online risks.
The Alannah & Madeline Foundation has developed the Digital Licence, the most comprehensive educational tool for online safety and responsibility.
This engaging resource was designed by cyber safety experts, teachers and industry leaders in education and technology.
With the support of Google more than 230,000 students are completing the program from over 2,000 schools Australia wide.
Our vision is that every Australian child will live in a safe and supportive environment, where technology is embraced and cyber bullying is reduced. With your support, we can make this possible.
This is your chance to invest in the digital future of children in your community

Partnering with the Stars Foundation thanks to the Telstra Foundation
We partnered with the Stars Foundation to help deliver the eSmart Digital Licence to 500 girls between years 7 and 12 in Darwin and Katherine – thanks to a sponsorship from the Telstra Foundation.
The Stars Foundation’s mission is to support and enable Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander girls and young women to make active choices towards realising their full potential in all aspects of their development and wellbeing.
Stars Foundation Development Manager Michael McLean said the eSmart Digital Licence fits in with its aim of teaching skills that foster resilience and wellbeing, leading to increased social connection, community participation and self-confidence.
“Stars prepares Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander girls for their future after school with a broad range of life skills and a healthy approach to living,” Michael said. “About 85 per cent of the girls in the Stars program have their own phone however their knowledge of cybersafety and responsible behaviour online is limited, so the Digital Licence is crucial in helping them better understand the technology they use every day to help keep them safe.”
