Why do I need encryption? I have nothing to hide!

You're a normal guy, you have nothing to hide why should you use encryption?

Well, today you THINK you have nothing to hide.

Snowden leaked documents prove that the NSA can store your communications metadata/content for
15 years, 10 online and 5 offline.
Maybe today being a patriot or a gun owner isn't so bad, yes people think you're kind of crazy, but

But let's suppose the next president cares about constitution and civil rights even less than the current
one and decides that your political beliefs, religion or sexual preference is a danger to society and
decides that people like you should be actively prosecuted, incarcerated or maybe summarily

You never know...
And besides that, NSA can't read and catalog your messages and they absolutely hate it!

The day we fought back results

Thanks to everyone who participated on Tuesday. Together we demonstrated that activists,
organizations, and companies can work in unison to fight mass surveillance, and laid a

foundation for escalation over months to come.

In the following link there are some numbers to quantify how we did.

Computer COMSEC for preppers

Previously I had mentioned there was a big project coming for this year, and here it is, is a course called
Computer COMSEC for preppers. The goal is to provide you with the tools and knowledge to
communicate securely using digital channels.

The course name is "Computer COMSEC" because COMSEC also involves operational aspects that
I would rather leave to more knowledgeable people like Sam Culper at Guerrilla America.

There is plenty of tutorials covering the tools we are going to use but the content of this course will
be targeted to preppers, III%'ers and Liberty Fighters so the lessons will be focused on our particular

Lessons will be in layman terms and explained simply so everyone can participate. More advanced
lessons will rely on previous lesson concepts.

Every Friday I will upload a lesson, article or tip that will include a practice segment which you can
use over the weekend.
These practice segments will be short so they won't eat up all of your weekend but will aide you in
retaining the needed knowledge.

In case you have a problem with the practice segment, you don't understand something, you have
doubts, or there is a topic you would like to see discussed, we have the "Questions & Answers"
board at Unchained Preppers or you can contact me. I encourage you to actively participate and ask
the questions you might have, don't forget your questions will give me ideas for new and future

The course is absolutely FREE and you won't need to spend a single dollar. The only things you will
need is your computer, a 2GB or bigger pen-drive and some time.

This Friday February 14th the first lesson will be available, the intro is already available HERE.
