Edward Snowden

Dear 5849376,

Today, on the anniversary of the first Snowden revelations about unconstitutional government spying, we're proud to be joining with dozens of other groups under the "Reset the Net" banner to encourage Internet users to adopt encryption tools for their personal communications.

To find out more about what you can do to protect your privacy, please read the email below from our friends at Fight for the Future, and take action.

Dear Becky,

One year ago today, the way we think about the Internet changed forever.

Edward Snowden blew the whistle on one of the worst human rights abuses in history: the U.S. government has been secretly monitoring our phone calls, webcams, texts, chats, real-time location, and reading habits -- literally everything we do online and with our phones.

Finally, there’s something you can do about it that will make a difference right now.

Click here to join Reset the Net and kick the government off of your computer and phone.

In the year since we first learned the lurid details of the NSA’s dragnet spying operation, a massive wave of opposition has echoed across the globe. Millions have taken action online and in the streets with one clear message: mass surveillance by any government is illegitimate. It violates our right to be ourselves, and undermines freedom of speech and democracy.

Despite the massive public outcry, a whole year after the revelations Congress has done nothing. The NSA is still tapping our phones and computers, while politicians endlessly debate our rights away.

We have no choice but to take matters into our own hands. Click here to learn how you can help Reset the Net.

We have to power to protect our privacy -- and reclaim the Internet – right now. The Snowden documents show that the NSA is relentless and corrupt, but they're not invincible. We know encryption works -- the proof is in the fact that the U.S. government still doesn’t know what documents Edward Snowden took.

Most of us haven’t tried using privacy tools yet. We use the Internet and feel icky knowing the government is watching and recording our every move. But the reality is that it’s easier than you think to take a few simple steps and protect your privacy and the privacy of your loved ones. The more of us that use basic encryption tools, the safer we all are.

Click here to get the Reset the Net “Privacy Pack” -- easy to use tools to protect your freedom.

Today thousands of people -- and some of the most popular websites and apps on the web -- are taking concrete steps to secure their part of the Internet and make suspicionless, dragnet-style surveillance exponentially more difficult and expensive for governments to conduct.

Today we’re coming together to make a better, safer web, and a better, freer world. Everyone has a role to play. Tell your friends.

For the Internet,

-Evan, Tiffiniy, and Holmes
