Digital Privacy. Open Source Solutions

Digital privacy helps individuals remain anonymous online by protecting personally identifiable information such as names, addresses and bank card information.

Various projects aim to develop privacy applications, practice guides and policies.
Digital privacy can be protected through a variety of measures, such as using strong passwords, encrypting data, and being careful when sharing personal information online.

Individuals also rely on laws and regulations to protect their privacy rights online. Many countries have laws governing data protection and privacy, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the European Union, which gives people the right to access, correct and delete their personal data held by organizations.

Digital privacy can be defined under three subcategories: information privacy, communication privacy, and identity privacy.

Digital privacy is increasingly becoming a topic of interest as information and data shared via social media becomes more commercialized. The more a user shares on social media, the more privacy is lost.
