Surfing anonymously and with little trace

As part of the 7at7 series, Digitale Gesellschaft offered in May 2020 an online course basic computer protection and security of messengers and video conferences.

In June, Digitale Gesellschaft offers a follow-up online course on protecting our privacy while surfing online.

After an introduction to the traces that are left behind when surfing the World Wide Web, we will deal with their removal: We neutralize cookies, install a tracking blocker and eliminate local traces. In the second part, we'll look at anonymous, secure, and censorship-resistant communication using Tor and install the Tor browser. The workshop will take about 90 minutes. There will be time for questions and discussions afterwards.

In order to be able to apply the tips right away, you will need to have Firefox installed.

The online course will take place on the BigBlueButton web conferencing and e-learning server hosted by Digitale Gesellschaft, accessible through this link:


For a smooth process we ask you to arrive in the room a few minutes before. If you do not have any experience with BigBlueButton, we will be there for you from 18:30 to help with any technical problems and to allow everyone to participate.

To stay updated with the organization of this event and to help us better prepare please register with an e-mail to 7(at)7at7.ch.

Note: Presentation language is German, but participation in English for comments and questions is possible.
