New Australian legislation protecting victims from online abuse is now in effect

Great to see our friends in Australia protecting victims from online abuse with the introduction of the Online Safety Act 2021 which came into effect on the 23rd January 2022.

This means social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook and Instagram must remove harmful material within 24 hours or face a hefty fine.

Under these new laws, if the platforms or websites ignore any take-down notices, they could see their sites deleted from search engines or their apps removed from the app stores.

This is new legislation that makes Australia’s existing laws for online safety more expansive and much stronger.
