Learn about the major risks to your privacy, how to discern riskier digital circumstances from safer ones, and "set-it-and-forget-it" low-barrier actions you can take to increase your protection. Have questions about two-factor authentication, password managers, https, private messaging apps, and how to stop those personalized ads with pictures of the last pair of shoes you shopped for from following you around online? During the workshop, take the opportunity to change browser settings, device settings, and browser plug-ins that will make real differences to your privacy. In addition, learn how to take advantage of library and campus resources that can help.
Bring your own smartphone, laptop, and other devices. Space is limited, please register in advance.
