Thursday, May 21 at 7 p.m. at the J.V. Fletcher Library In an age where so much of our lives are spent online, it’s starting to feel like our privacy is being eradicated. Alison Macrina, a librarian and privacy rights activist, will introduce an online privacy toolkit that offers some basic solutions to help subvert digital spying.  These tools address things like search tracking, encryption, password protection, secure deletion of temporary files, secure browsing, online anonymity and more.  Participants are welcome (but not required) to bring their laptops or smart devices to follow along and download the tools as they are demonstrated. Free!  Drop-in. Open to ages sixteen and up.
“This program is generously funded by the Friends of the J.V. Fletcher Library.”
