Edward Snowden coined the topic of digital PRVCY because he believes that everyone deserves a separation between their private life and their right to intimacy. Snowden has been warning about the rapid advances in surveillance technology since 2013, ten years ago, and today we want to commemorate his commitment to digital privacy.
In 2020, Mozilla Firefox announced the Social Media Analysis Toolkit (SMAT), which addresses the challenges of manipulated online discourse. Co-developed by Mozilla Fellow Emmi Bevensee, it is a free, easy-to-use and open-source tool designed to analyze digital conversations. SMAT is designed to help activists, journalists, researchers and other non-profit organizations with censorship by analyzing and visualizing harmful online trends such as hate, misinformation and disinformation.
There are various ways to gain access to your email account, for example via your devices or via a list that has just been hacked. It is therefore important to check that you are the only one who has access to your emails.
The Domain Name System (DNS) is the telephone book of the Internet. Since the DNS is an integral part of most Internet queries, it can be a prime target for attacks. By accessing your DNS, anyone can find out pretty much all of your online activity on your computer.
From smart homes and wearable devices to industrial systems and healthcare devices, the IoT has revolutionized the way we interact with technology. However, this interconnectedness also brings with it a major problem: risks to digital privacy. In this blog post, we will look at the concept of IoT and explore the potential privacy risks associated with it.
In today's interconnected world, email has become an indispensable tool for communication. Whether you're sending personal messages or conducting business transactions, the security of your emails is of paramount importance. With the ever-increasing threats of hacking, phishing, and data breaches, it's crucial to choose a secure email provider. In this blog post, we will explore the three safest email providers that prioritize user privacy and security.
From August 2023, major social media platforms will have to fully comply with the EU Digital Services Regulation.

Is the convenience of e-SIMs compromising our data security, or are they the future's safeguard for our personal information? Explore the delicate balance between modern convenience and data protection in this insightful article.
Quantum computing alone—just one of three main areas of emerging quantum technology. Security researchers have been busy developing a number of alternative cryptographic systems that are seen as less likely to succumb to a quantum attack, called post-quantum or quantum-safe. But researchers might also discover better quantum algorithms in the future that can beat these systems.
