CryptoPartyLDN organises monthly events about digital rights, privacy, and information security.

You're invited! Come along for free training, lightning talks, new friends and crypto-themed cocktails…

We provide free beginner-level workshops on digital privacy tools, such as secure messaging; email encryption software; laptop and smartphone security; and safe and anonymous web browsing.

Am I being tracked online? Are my messages really private? What's Tor? Are my passwords secure? These are some of the questions we try to answer.

Digital technologies play an increasingly important role in our society, yet they often appear as impenetrable black boxes. We aim to unveil this opacity, to shed some light on the inner complexity - technical but also economical and political - of our digital world.

CryptoPartyLDN is about technology and technological tools - but not only that. Most importantly, we see CryptoPartyLDN as a conversation starter, an open space where digital citizens can share their concerns and look for possible solutions. Together.
