Privacy for Humans explores how we share (and overshare) on social media and ways we can avoid being treated solely as a ‘user’ and regain our humanity online.
Do you want to learn practical, actionable skills to engage with technology on your own terms? Do you want to take responsibility for your personal privacy and feel confident in your choices? This guidebook empowers you to bring wisdom and focus to your use of technology and shows you how to stay “connected” in a conscious way. Privacy for Humans walks you through an understandable, plain English breakdown of privacy and security practice fundamentals and offers tips on how to develop your self beyond your “online life”. The Privacy Guru shares clear, easy-to-follow steps for applying this new knowledge to your online privacy practices through the idea of how we S.E.E. – Stop. Evaluate. Enter. When we S.E.E clearly, we have the tools to recognize legitimate sites and make focused and conscious choices about the personal information we share online. Privacy for Humans also reinforces the notion that being private is OK. Choosing to be private does not mean you have something to hide!
