Enemy of the [Surveillance] State

02 - How Encryption Protects Privacy and Why You Should Use It For Everything

February 21, 2020

This week, I discuss encryption and how it protects your privacy. I also discuss the War on Encryption and the types of encryption I recommend you use and the types I recommend you avoid.

Sound clips used in this episode come from the following: 

The Daily Conversation March 2016

Links to the services I discuss and recommend in this week's episode:

Signal text app



(I did not name this in the episode, but for encrypting hard drives, USB sticks, and more try VeraCrypt)

And for anyone who wants to learn more about Linux, I use Ubuntu Linux on all my computers.
