Spying Online In Syria

EFF IN THE NEWS
June 7, 2012

These and others are all fine suggestions, says the EFF’s Eva Galperin. But the most important step, she says, is for Syrians not to fall prey to what she calls privacy nihilism:

“It’s very easy when you’re leaving the house every day and you’re simply risking your life by stepping out onto the street to think ‘Well, they’re spying on me anyway, so I should take no precautions.’ To that I say it’s extremely important to take precautions.  It’s one thing to say the government can spy on you; it’s quite another to make it easy for them to do so. Don’t make it easy for them.”
