Privacy isn’t about whether we have something to hide, it’s about our ability to be ourselves. It’s about whether or not we want to live in a world with freedom of speech. It’s about whether or not we care about the future of democracy in the world.
Privacy also isn’t only for tech geeks and geniuses.
Today we begin the largest collective effort in human history to secure the Internet and directly interfere with dragnet spying.
Reset the Net is not a single day of action — it’s a coordinated, long term effort that will actually work.
It’s already working!
Just today the pressure we’ve created pushed major sites like WordPress, Tumblr, Dropbox, Twitter, and Mozilla to take real, meaningful steps that will make suspicionless spying much tougher.
But this isn’t about them. It’s about all of us.
Today is our day. It’s a day we can feel proud to be internet users, and a day that governments and companies won’t soon forget.
And, it’s only the beginning.

The free, open source apps that we’re suggesting in the Reset the Net privacy pack are easy enough for everyone to use. Heck, send them to your technically challenged parents. The more of us that use these tools the safer we all are, not only from the NSA, but from any government, company, or bad actor that wants to invade our privacy.
Don’t ask for your privacy. Take it back.
