About Us

Hector’s World is a fully owned subsidiary of Netsafe New Zealand, an independent not-for-profit online safety charity.

Taking a technology-positive approach to the challenges digital technology presents, we work to help people in New Zealand take advantage of the opportunities available through technology by providing practical tools, support and advice for managing online challenges.

Netsafe keep people of all ages safe online by providing free support, advice and education seven days a week. We are driven by our vision and gear everything we do to achieving our purpose: “To support the people in Aotearoa New Zealand to have safe and positive online experiences”.

Hector’s World was first created by Netsafe in 2007 and has been educating and entertaining children around the world since then. In 2024 we reimagined Hector’s World to bring the characters and storyline up to date with today’s digital climate and to make sure the online challenges and issues in the series relate to kiwi Tamariki today.
