What's a CryptoParty

Have you ever dreamt of a place where friends sit next to you and help you make sense of this or that technological conundrum - secure passwords, social media privacy settings, internet cookies, is my phone secure, surveillance capitalism, etc? CryptoParties are that place - a place where you can ask those questions and find friendly answers.

We give talks and workshops on digital rights, privacy, technology (and the systems of power around it!). Learn how to use privacy enhancing applications to, for instance, improve the security of your online communications and safely browse the internet. CryptoParty events are free and open to everyone - beginners are particularly welcome.

If you've been to a CryptoParty already or are an advanced tech user, fear not - we've got you covered too. You can ask advanced questions to our crypto-angels in a 1-2-1 session. Come and talk to us about your favourite project or topic, start an impromptu workshop about it, meet new friends and find potential collaborators. Let's all build CryptoParty London as a space for collaboration and p2p learning. Let's hack away the gloomy feeling of surveillance capitalism and build our stairway to digital empowerment.
