Don’t live in fear of your phone! Join us for a personal communication security workshop and learn how to put your technology (and those who might be monitoring it) in their place.

Topics of this workshop include encryption, VPN, strong passwords and passcodes, and general security tips and hints.

Please bring your phones and/or laptops so we can help you lock things down!
We strive to make all Oh Shit! What Now? events a space free of oppression, so please leave your bullshit at home. For more information on our group, our safer spaces policy and our rules, please see our FAQ:
