The Morrison government providing $10 million to further boost online safety through the eSafety Commissioner after seeing an explosion in internet usage.

Cyber Safety Minister Paul Fletcher says traffic over the NBN has increased by around 70 per cent during the day with lots more people working and studying from home during the coronavirus pandemic.

“The extra internet usage is a very good thing but a small proportion of human interactions online are bad ones,” Mr Fletcher told ABC television’s Insiders program on Sunday.

“That’s why the eSafety Commissioner is there to support Australians who have been the victim of cyber bullying, unauthorised sharing of intimate images and so on.”
