Everyone, from activists, journalists, CEOs, and politicians, walk around with a computer in their pocket, sometimes calling it a phone. But unlike a laptop or a desktop, you don’t really own or control the computer in your pocket. This week on Salted Hash, we talk about mobile privacy and security with the founder of The Guardian Project, Nathan Freitas.
Nathan Freitas has a long history of fascination with the portable computers we call phones. He’s worked with activists and human rights supporters for years, helping them to organize and stay in touch. In 2004, he left the mainstream technology industry and started working on tools and technology for activists. In 2009, his work resulted in the creation of the open source project aptly named the Guardian Project, which is where we are today.
