Do average people really need this kind of security? Yes. They may be planning a political campaign, discussing taxes, or having an illicit affair. They may be designing a new product, discussing a marketing strategy, or planning a hostile business takeover. Or they may be living in a country that does not respect the rights of privacy of its citizens. They may be doing something that they feel shouldn't be illegal, but is. For whatever reason, the data and communications are personal, private, and no one else's business.

Welcome to Cryptonoise! This is the website for you if you want to learn more about things you can do to protect your privacy when browsing the web or communicating online. It also aims to teach users about digital rights and censorship.

Check out our Getting Started page for an introduction to these topics or our Fun Tools to see how well you're doing at protecting your privacy online.

Cryptonoise also holds a monthly meetup, where we like to discuss any news or relevant events that affect our digital rights. Check the Where page to see if there is a meeting near you, and come along if you're interested in either:

  1. an opportunity to learn about cryptographic technologies, or
  2. discussing news and political events which might have an impact on your privacy.

Cryptonoise meetups provide a great opportunity to learn about being safe online. If there's not a Cryptonoise meetup organised near you, you can organize one! Pick a time, place and frequency and send the details to the mailing list to have your event added to the list.

You can also follow us on Twitter @cryptonoiseorg.
