Protect your privacy: Resist mass cracking by US law enforcement

In April 2016, the US Supreme Court approved amendments to Rule 41 of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure (FRCrmP) that will threaten the privacy of Internet users worldwide. The changes will go into effect December 1, 2016, unless a bipartisan bill called the Stopping Mass Hacking Act* is approved. **You can help stop this unprecedented and dangerous expansion of government cracking authority!

Stop the Rule 41 changes from threatening Internet users: contact US Congress, use privacy and decentralization tools, and subscribe to the Free Software Supporter for updates on this and other free software issues. You can also read EFF's letter to Congress, endorsed by a coalition of concerned digital rights organizations and tech companies, as well as the Center for Democracy & Technology's written statement on the issue.

* Note: The term "hacking" is often misused in mainstream media to refer those who break computer security. The correct term for this is "cracking." Hacking, on the other hand, refers to solving a specific problem by writing some creative computer code in minimal time.
