Surf Smarter: How to Protect Your Privacy on the Web

Have you noticed after you've been searching for information on the web, that ads mirroring your search begin to pop up and follow you around? You and your browsing history are a source of behavioral information and is being shared with third parties. Learn to fight back and opt-out by taking the Surf Smarter class. You'll learn to use tools and tactics, including ways to protect your data and, ultimately, your privacy.

Laptops will be available for use, but if you have your own laptop, iPad or other Wi-Fi enabled device, feel free to bring it to class.
