Why Get Safe?
We lock the doors to our houses, but our whole lives are stored on our phones and computers. If we don’t lock down our devices, all of our personal information is easily accessed by stalkers, identity thieves, and even the government. All your photos, your banking info, your emails, every message you’ve ever sent -- if it falls into the wrong hands, it can put you and the people you care about in danger.
Where do I Start?
Get Safe shows you what you can do to start securing your most private information. Protecting your privacy can feel overwhelming. Get Safe makes it easy -- like taking a simple online survey. We'll walk you through some basic steps that will dramatically increase the safety of the personal information stored on your phone and computer. It's quick, you don’t need to be tech savvy, and it’s worth it just for the peace of mind.
Where Can I Learn More?
Get Safe is just a starting point. There are many digital security tools and best practices that are not listed here. If you are at high risk for being spied on or having your information stolen, you should seek out more advanced materials or get expert advice. To learn more, visit the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s comprehensive Surveillance Self-Defense site here.
How does it work?
We’ll ask you a series of questions about your phone and laptop settings and how you currently use these devices. If you’ve completed the step, click “yes” or “done” and move on to the next step. Keep in mind, threats to your digital security are changing quickly and all the time. At the end, we’ll ask you to sign up for updates from Fight for the Future so we can help you stay safe.
