Freelancers' hangout for smartphone security

Freelancers' hangout for smartphone security
Friday, 15 November 2013 Written by Andrew Ford Lyons

The Guardian Project and Rory Peck Trust will be co-hosting a live online Q&A for freelancers to discuss mobile security tools and strategies.



Whether you are a freelancer investigating controversial issues or simply concerned about protecting your privacy, come along! Our friends at The Guardian Project will be able to help you set up your mobile phone and answer any questions you might have regarding digital security for your mobile.

After creating our Digital Security resource, our aim has been to get more freelancers aware of the potential hazards that can accompany using mobile phones on high-risk assignments. Our focus is on helping freelancers assess the risks and identify what they can do to limit them.


The Guardian Project creates and supports a range of open source apps that could help you hold conversations more privately. On 4 December we'll be using Google Hangouts to look at how freelancers can use these apps, and adopt more secure practices. You'll be able to watch it live and submit your questions. The session starts at 2:30 pm (GMT) and goes until 4:30 pm. Find out what time that is for your part of the world here
