Quick exit - Design System

Immediately navigate away from sensitive content.


The quick exit functionality allows a user to exit sensitive content quickly.

Once clicked, the browser will close the page they're browsing and will automatically open a blank Google search page.

It appears consistently on each page of a site, directly underneath the main menu.

How to build

The quick exit is used only on sites for specific audiences.

If you'd like to add a Quick Exit to your site, contact your site administrator. For more detailed information view the Victorian Government digital guide.
