Security Self-Defense, presented by the Electronic Frontier Foundation

For awhile now, I’ve been aware of the Electronic Frontier Foundation (the EFF), and I make good use of a fair number of their projects. The following is not an exhaustive list:

I also follow a fair share of recommendations from Privacy Tools including using uMatrix and CookieAutoDelete.
