Make the Switch
Encryption makes our lives safer and keeps our personal information and conversations private. Make the Switch to strong encryption and help us build a more secure Internet for everyone.
Why is Encryption Essential?
Keeping Us Safe
Increasing the use of end-to-end encrypted platforms not only keeps you and the people you love safe from hackers and thieves, but also improves the security of the Internet as a whole. That is why every person, business and organization should Make the Switch to using strong encryption by Global Encryption Day.
Protecting Our Privacy
End-to-end encryption keeps us safer by helping to keep criminals out of our personal, family and business communications. But in some parts of the world, encryption is under threat.
Global Encryption Day is an opportunity to tell governments around the world that protecting and strengthening encryption is crucial to making the Internet safer for their citizens. It will send a message to governments to abandon plans to grant law enforcement agencies special powers to access your private data on encrypted platforms, which will weaken encryption, and the Internet as a whole.
It Matters to All of Us
Global Encryption Day is an opportunity for businesses, civil society organizations, technologists, and millions of Internet users worldwide to show governments and our communities why encryption matters to all of us. The larger the movement, the harder it will be for critics to make decisions that undermine our safety by weakening or banning end-to-end encryption.
