About this class

Information is power, right? So, the more information that you provide online, the more power people who have access to this information have over you. For example the more information you give to the cellphone company, the more power they potentially have over you. Through this series of workshops you’ll learn how much personal information companies and the government can access about you and be introduced to concrete, actionable steps to protect your privacy.
