Today’s launch of the Reset the Net campaign commemorates the anniversary of the first news stories on surveillance programs at the U.S. National Security Agency, based on leaks from former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, who has endorsed the effort in a statement through his lawyer.
Some well-known companies, organizations, and publishers have joined the campaign:
— Google announced an end-to-end encrypted email project.
— EFF is encouraging its members to run Tor relays that route Internet traffic on the secure Tor network.
—BoingBoing will add SSL by default to protect user privacy and will make the Privacy Pack available on the site permanently.
— Reddit offers free ads to promote privacy tools.
Here’s the effort’s Privacy Pack, a set of free, open-source tools focused on protecting your privacy on the web: https://pack.resetthenet.org/.
