F-Secure is an online security and privacy company from Finland, spearheading the #digitalfreedom movement. F-Secure is a company that offers millions of people around the globe the power to surf invisibly and store and share stuff, safe from online threats. As we all know, Digital freedoms are declining around the world, a fact spotlighted by the Snowden revelations, and high-profile company hacks that left individuals personal identity in the wrong hands. The F-Secure #digitalfreedom goal is to attract anyone who feels strongly about privacy issues, and to raise awareness of digital freedom and its fragile state in today’s society. With the help of F-Secure’s ambassador David Hasselhoff of the #DigitalFreedom movement, individuals will be allowed to join in the writing of the #fsecure #digitalfreedom manifesto that will address four faces of digital freedom:
1. Freedom from mass surveillance
The two great innovations of our time, the mobile phone and the Internet, have been turned into surveillance tools to be used against us. And the problem with programs like PRISM is that they aren’t just about doing surveillance on people suspected of crimes. They’re also about spying on people governments know are innocent.
2. Freedom from digital persecution
You may think you have nothing to hide now, but how do you know how things will change over time? It’s now cheaper to retain data forever than to destroy it. So what happens when some aspect of your online activity today is used against you in the future? No law-abiding citizen should live with that fear.
3. Freedom from digital colonization
Technologies are fundamentally changing our world at a staggering speed. But just because something is technically possible doesn’t mean that we should have to blindly accept it into our lives.
4. Freedom of digital access, movement and speech
What we say and write in private should be of no interest to any governmental organization and we should fight for the freedom of access to platforms, movement and freedom of speech.
