Own Your Data

WorkshopsWhich device settings and privacy apps do you use to reduce your digital footprint?

Most free online services today are designed to capture user data in order to generate revenue through personalized advertising.  Our personal information is compiled and sold to those seeking to target individuals using highly specific demographic and psychographic data. These targeted ads can be used to influence behavior during elections, push individuals towards extremism or simply to sell products.

In the workshop Tech Talks: Own Your Data (Apple & Android) we look at both the simple and advanced ways settings and apps can be used to ensure private communications and also limit the amount of data you are sharing with websites and online services. Check our the library's virtual calendar to view and register for upcoming events.
