“The internet is a remarkably inclusive destination that fulfils both our information and communication needs. Our online identity is our new face and our email ID is our virtual
address from where we chat, share, retrieve and research information each day, so it is important that we give our young people the tools they need to make smart digital decisions,” said Alka Sharma, spokesperson, Yahoo Safely.

Priyanka Jetly of DAV Public School, New Delhi, added, “Today’s students should be made aware about copyright issues, piracy and safe access on the internet and at the same time they need to understand the inherent dangers of sharing personal information and identification to any sources online. The Web is a marvellous destination for everyone, so it is important that our students understand and can deal with the important online issues they face every day.”
