Attend a Cryptoparty in Hyderabad!
Learn to secure your digital services and communication channels

Governments around the world are greatly increasing their surveillance of the Internet. Alongside a loss of the private sphere, this also represents a clear danger to basic civil liberties. The good news is that we already have the solution; Encrypting communications makes it very hard, if not entirely impossible, for others to eavesdrop on our conversations. The bad news is that crypto is largely ignored by the general public, partly because they don't know about it, and partly because even if they do, it seems too much trouble to implement.

So let's go and have a party, and teach each other how to use Crypto!


Everyone is invited! Invite your friends, colleagues and family. Let's party together.

Do not hesitate to join, even (or especially) if you don't use secure technologies at all.


What to bring
  • Desire to learn about secure communications (mandatory! :D)
  • Expertise, to share with others (if possible)
  • Laptop and/or smart phone
Food and Drinks
  • Snacks would be served.
  • Hashtag: #CryptoHyd



Help make mass surveillance of entire populations uneconomical! We all have a right to privacy, which you can exercise today by encrypting your communications and ending your reliance on proprietary services.
