Australian Online Safety Act and how to report online harm

The Australian Online Safety Act 2021 (Online Safety Act) is designed to keep Australians safe from online harm. Learn more about the Online Safety Act. 

Here is what you can do if you or someone you know sees distressing content online or experiences online harm or abuse,  or if you are looking to keep you and your family safe online.  

Report online harm to eSafety 

The eSafety Commissioner is Australia's independent regulator for online safety and can investigate and help you deal with serious online abuse and illegal and restricted online content. You can report a complaint about cyberbullying, adult cyber abuse, image-based abuse (sharing, or threatening to share, intimate images without the consent of the person shown) or illegal and restricted online content to eSafety directly.
