DIGITAL SECURITY AND SAFETY

As much as we want to hope, most websites we browse on the internet do not have the user’s best interest in mind regarding anonymity and privacy. In the day and age of advertising technology, most websites have tracking built into them. While this isn’t meant to instill fear, it’s still a reality many face today when it comes to searching online for abortion information.

Digital Defense Fund

Digital Defense Fund (DDF) provides digital security and technology support to organizations and individuals working in the abortion access movement. This website is organized into different security-related threats and a list of digital security tips.
