Secure Messaging Apps: Privacy and Digital Communication
April 16, 2019

Today most communication is done through text messaging and Smartphone apps. This is a convenient and fun way to stay in touch, but what does it mean for our privacy? Cell phone providers and social media companies use the metadata and contents of our messages to provide targeted ads and build profiles of us based on our location, interests, and contacts. This webinar will provide tips on ways to communication with your friends, family, and colleagues while maintaining your privacy.

Learning Objectives:

Understand what data is shared when sending text messages (SMS)
Know which popular messaging services are encrypted and which are not
Know how to use and install Signal
