How to report to eSafety Commissioner
You've got the power to let the eSafety Commissioner know what's going on. They're the leading authority in Australia when it comes to keeping the online world safe, and they're all about responding to complaints and taking action when things go south.
When you make a report, they might need some proof of the harm you’ve experienced. It's like leaving them breadcrumbs to follow, such as web page addresses (URLs) or a person’s user profile, or screenshots where they make sense.

The Online Safety Act is a set of new regulation that aims to keep online service providers, including Telstra and Boost Mobile, more responsible for the online safety of their customers and anyone who uses their service.
