HER Internet conducted a Digital Safety workshop in Kampala yesterday on Wednesday 29 June 2022, as part of our efforts to enhance their digital safety skills for effective advocacy online as individuals, organizations and collectives. This initiative that was supported by Power Of Pride and the TOR Project engaged participants in topics that span around basic cyber safety, secure browsing, social engineering, phishing and circumvention techniques as we embrace this digital revolution.

In a session on Circumvention Techniques that was facilitated by the Deputy Executive Director at HER Internet, Kettie Kahume, attendees were implored to adapt the The Onion Router (Tor) Browser which allows free access to the internet safely and anonymously without data mining and tracking activities from third parties. They were also engaged in practical lessons on how to download, install and operate this tool using their personal electronic devices in addition to other secure communication apps.

Please reach out to us for assistance in case you or anyone that you know experiences any form of violence that breaches the community standards on any Meta app through email:

Attendees indulge in hands-on lessons on how the T.O.R Browser works.
