At National Online Safety, we provide multi-award-winning online safety education for the whole school community. It’s our mission to make the internet a safer place for children. We believe that when children go online to learn, communicate or play, they should be able to do so safely. That’s why we provide schools all over the world with the knowledge they need in order to tackle new and evolving online risks.

What are piracy websites?
Piracy websites host illegal copies of films, music, games, software, or other digital goods. They might offer streams (in much the same way services such as Netflix legally stream video), downloads, or links to other websites on which illegal copies can be found. Piracy tends to be regarded as a soft crime with no real victims but using pirate websites can be dangerous.
