Online privacy workshop May 4

BLUE HILL — The Blue Hill Public Library will hold a workshop about ways to protect online privacy, on Saturday, May 4, at 10 a.m.

From botnets to big data, threats to privacy are everywhere online, and securing digital devices against these threats might seem like a daunting challenge.

The good news is that it is possible to have better privacy on the internet.

Privacy activist Alison Macrina of the Library Freedom Project and American Civil Liberties Union staffer Kade Crockford will share solutions to avoid digital spying and data exploitation.

They will talk about avoiding tracking and malware, different types of encryption, passwords, safer browsing, our privacy rights and more.

For more information, call the library at 374-5515.
