Encryption Apps for your Phone: An Intermediate Workshop

  • San Francisco Library Main Branch 100 Larkin Street San Francisco, CA, 94102 United States (map)

Hosted by EFF and the San Francisco Public Library
Tuesday, April 18, 2017, 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm

In partnership with the San Francisco Public Library. High-profile data breaches and hard-fought battles against unlawful mass surveillance programs underscore that the public needs practical information about online security. We know more about potential threats each day, but we also know that encryption works and can help thwart digital spying. Lack of knowledge about best practices puts individuals at risk, so EFF will bring lessons from its comprehensive Surveillance Self-Defense guide to the SFPL.

Join EFF's Lisa Wright and William Theaker at the San Francisco Public Library as they lead an intermediate workshop on encryption apps for your mobile phone, including:

  • Voice
  • Text
  • Chat
  • Full-disk encryption

Please bring your mobile phone so you can install the applications. You're also encouraged to bring a friend (and their phone) so you can test out the encryption apps!

Space is limited. First-come, first-served.
