Protecting Library Patron Privacy Online

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Information privacy is a cornerstone of library ethics. So why would we compromise that on library computers? Yet without our intervention, library patrons can have their behavior tracked when they use the web on our computers, or join our wireless Internet networks. Learn what we can (and, unfortunately, can't) do to protect patron privacy online. After a brief introduction to some of the significant threats to online privacy, this session will provide a swift tour of privacy- and security-protecting technologies, including wireless network encryption, privacy-positive web browser settings, anti-tracking web browser plugins, password managers and privacy-positive search engines and other online tools. Attendees will leave with  actionable and relatively easy to implement privacy enhancers for their library computing environment.
