RIYADH: Celebrated on Feb. 9, Safer Internet Day (SID) started in 2004 as an initiative of the EU-funded SafeBorders project. Since then, it has grown into a landmark annual event marked by more than 170 countries and aims to promote the safe and responsible use of online technology by people around the world.

Raising awareness about the safe use of social media platforms has been a key focus of SID activities with particular attention being paid to concerns over political manipulation, cyberbullying, and harassment.
