What kind of spider is this and is it dangerous?

Perth, Australia

I saw this spider in my house today. Could someone please tell me what it is and if it is dangerous. I'm afraid it may be a white tail but not sure. I hope the photos are good enough for you to identify it. I was afraid to get too close to it.
Many thanks in advance,

The images are insufficient for a positive i.d. (at least by me, anyway). That aside, it does not look like anything that you need be concerned about; definitely not a white tail. Possibilities include something in the families Corinnidae or Gnaphosidae...

Thank you for your quick reply. It's reassuring to know it is not dangerous.
