Global Encryption Coalition

Thank you for joining us for Global Encryption Day 2022

Strong encryption is the standard that is keeping billions of people safe every day. We need to push back against government efforts to undermine it.

On Global Encryption Day, you joined our efforts to defend strong encryption and this is what happened. End-to-end encryption protects all of us – that’s why we all need to protect it.

See how people around the world are advocating to save strong encryption.

Encryption safeguards the personal security of billions of people and the national security of countries around the world.
