The Stay Smart Online Alert Service is a free service for Australian internet users, to explain recent online threats and how they can be managed.

Home and small business users are provided with easy to understand online safety and security information and solutions to help protect their online safety and privacy. The resource also informs users about the latest threats and vulnerabilities within an Australian context, and how to address any risks to their devices or computer networks. Users can unsubscribe from the service at any time.
