Netsafe has launched a new tool-kit to help elderly New Zealanders stay safe on the web.

The Get Set Up for Safety programme is a joint project with Chorus providing free guides, videos, and resources on the basics of online safety.

Research by Netsafe found almost half of people aged over 70 were interested in learning more about online safety while 49 percent said they needed help when using a device.

Netsafe chief online safety officer Sean Lyons spoke to Corin Dann.
