Do you want to regain some control over the information and data that you share online?  Do you want to know how to communicate privately and securel ?  Do you want to reduce what advertisers, ISPs, and websites know about you?

Have you let yourself install too many apps, clicked "I agree" a few too many times, lost track of how many accounts you've created?  Don't despair!  This privacy and security workshop is designed just for you!

By the end of this workshop you will:
Install one of two good options for a VPN
Begin to practice online compartmentation
Clean up and privatize your social media accounts
Understand and experience browser fingerprinting
Have a password manager installed with 2FA enabled
Know how to securely communicate with a trusted contact
Know how to (mostly anonymously) buy and use a prepaid card

This workshop features an accelerated and enhanced version of the 8-Day Data Detox Kit, originally produced by Tactical Tech and Mozilla.  The instructor will walk participants through the guide and supplement the kit's instructions with real-world examples and additional actions that will increase your privacy while improving the security of your accounts and devices.

Participants will receive a paper copy of the kit along with printouts of supplemental information and links.  Participants are expected to bring their own devices and have a beginner to intermediate skill level with browsing the Internet and using and configuring their device.
