Gather ‘Round the Laptop for Tales of Digital Rights and Derring-Do!

The Electronic Frontier Foundation is celebrating its 34th anniversary with a miniseries of campfire tales from our friends, The Encryptids—the rarely-seen creatures who’ve become digital rights legends. They've come out of the woodwork to celebrate the virtues of a web that supports online privacy, free expression, and digital access for everyone. The Encryptids may be mysterious, but your digital rights shouldn’t be.

And don’t forget that through July 10, 2024 you can become an EFF member for just $20 and receive two rare gifts featuring Bigfoot and The Encryptids. Join EFF today!

As a special bonus, Craig Newmark Philanthropies will match up to $30,000 for your first year as a new monthly or annual Sustaining Donor! Many thanks to Craig—founder of Craigslist and a persistent supporter of digital freedom—for making this possible.

Be on the lookout for new guest posts from The Encryptids below!
