Surveillance Self-Defense

Use this GnuPG public key to send me an encrypted email.

Bulk surveillance violates our fundamental rights and makes free speech risky. Even if you have nothing to hide, using encryption helps protect the privacy of people you communicate with, and makes life difficult for bulk surveillance systems.

This guide will teach you a basic surveillance self-defense skill: email encryption. Once you’ve finished, you’ll be able to send and receive emails that are scrambled to make sure a surveillance agent or thief intercepting your email can’t read them. All you need is a computer with an Internet connection, an email account, and about forty minutes.

Please visit the Email Self-Defense site to learn how and why you should use GnuPG for your electronic communication.

If you want to print leaflets, use FSFE’s GnuPG leaflet.
