????-2020: CryptoParty at Juju's - postponed due to COVID19 Corona Virus fears

Reluctantly we are postponing the next CryptoParty London physical face to face event due to COVID19 Corona Virus fears, more on public transport than at the excellent Jujus Bar venue.

We are investigating the possibility of holding some online video conferencing sessions.

Please wash your hands and keep healthy.

What's a CryptoParty

CryptoParties are FREE, beginner-friendly gatherings to help people of all ages and abilities to reclaim their privacy and power online. Our trainers are digital privacy experts who will help you with phone security, private communications, secure passwords, social media privacy settings, web browsing privacy and more.

We also host talks, debates and workshops on digital rights, privacy, technology (and the systems of power around it!).

If you've been to a CryptoParty already or are an advanced tech user, you're welcome too! 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.

CryptoParty London is organised by Big Brother Watch and friends. If you want get involved, get in touch!
