Next Digital Privacy Salon 10/12/19: All I Want 4 Xmas…Is A Hardened Browser

Whichever browser we use, it is one of the ways we interact most frequently with the internet and one of the ways we leak loads of private information.

Come to the last Salon of 2019 and we’ll help you lock down your browser so it gives away as little information about your habits, preferences and location as possible – please bring along your laptop and pre-install firefox for this edition of the Privacy Salon.
