Friday, July 22, 2022: 10:00 pm (DAC 206): After having an in-person private conversation, have you noticed your search results and advertisements mimic the private discussion you just had? Privacy is not the default anymore. Privacy cannot be bought with a single product or service. As with security, privacy is a disciplined set of guidelines that must be followed for continued protection.

In this talk, Michael will present concrete steps that can be taken to increase the privacy and security of everyday computer usage. Topics will include levels of protection, operating systems, handling passwords, customizing web browsers, and Internet communication. You will be encouraged to push back against bulk surveillance by replacing proprietary products with alternatives through software freedom and to share the tips you will learn in this talk with your friends.
