About STOP. THINK. CONNECT.STOP. THINK. CONNECT.™ is the first-ever coordinated message to help all digital citizens stay safer and more secure online. The message was created by an unprecedented coalition of companies, nonprofits and government organizations. In 2009, the Anti-Phishing Working Group and National Cyber Security Alliance led the effort to find a unified online safety message that could be adapted across public and private sectors. The goal is to help everyone understand the risks and benefits that come with using the Internet.
