Online Privacy Workshop, Central Library, Feb. 21, 11:00 AM

Worried about how much of your personal information Google, Facebook, and other online software providers have collected? Concerned about overbroad government surveillance programs hoovering up your private data? Uneasy about criminal hackers who might seek to exploit you? Our online privacy is indeed under threat, but the good news is that there are technology tools to help us fight back. Join us at the Central Library, February 21 at 11:00 a.m. Alison Macrina, a librarian and privacy rights activist, will present an online privacy toolkit that offers solutions to help subvert digital spying. These tools address things like search tracking, encryption, password protection, secure deletion of temporary files, secure browsing, online anonymity, and more. This class lasts until 2 pm and is appropriate for all levels of technical ability. Bring your laptop to get the most out of it! You may bring a mobile device, like a smartphone or tablet, but please be aware that the focus of this class will primarily be on desktop software.
