Every Day Is Data Privacy Day

A woman is looking down at her cellphone. AI has targeted her face for recognition.

Every year on Jan 28, we celebrate Data Privacy Day. 🥳

But why not take time every day to consider our personal data (and how protected it is)?

With that goal in mind, we’ve put together a Data Privacy Day kit to help us all protect our own data—for today and the days to come. ⬇️

Attend 👀

Find 2024 in-person and virtual events to attend and meet others who care about data privacy.

Act 👉

⓵ Update your devices – Take a few minutes to make sure your computer and mobile devices are running the latest versions of their operating systems and software. ✅

⓶ Check for doxxing – Doxxing is the act of publicly providing personally identifiable information (PII) about an individual or organization, usually via the internet and without their consent to do so.

  1. Google your name and the word “address” and see what shows up in the page 1 search results.
  2. If your PII shows up, don’t fret! Google has a relatively easy process to remove doxxing information from search results. (Be sure to include links and screenshots of the offending search results.)
