• Virtual Meetup: Staying Safe - Overview of FREE Encryption Tools

    We will take a look at the FREE tools that you can use to maintain your privacy online, and discuss which ones are best for your needs. Security and privacy - what does it mean to you in your everyday life? It used to be hard to use the tools that safeguard your identity and your information online. You had to be a pretty technical person - the good news is that it has gotten easier to be secure in your online persona. These are some of the tools we will look at: 1. Off-the-Record (OTR) Messaging allows you to have private conversations over instant messaging. 2. Email Encryption using Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) is a data encryption and decryption computer program that provides cryptographic privacy and authentication for data communication. There is also the GnuPG system here: https://emailselfdefense.fsf.org/en 3. Tails is a live operating system, that you can start on almost any computer from a DVD, USB stick, or SD card. It aims at preserving your privacy and anonymity. There are also some great apps for secure texting and secure phones that provide end-to-end encryption for your calls, securing your conversations so that nobody can listen in. There is no way to be bulletproof, but knowing about the options available can provide a measure of security. It is ultimately up to you to decide how much security you want.
