Cryptoparty Ann Arbor is a community of privacy-minded educators, techies, activists, and enthusiasts working to help you reclaim your privacy. We put people first, and see within technology the potential for liberating social change.

What we do

  • Educate public on privacy issues in the digital age.
  • Informal training and assistance to empower people to live their lives as they see fit.
  • Fight back against privacy intrusions, from greedy corporations to nosey government bureaus.

Getting Involved

Whether you’re simply curious or want to start a technical revolution, we encourage you to get in touch with us physically or electronically. The only time conditions change is when we band together to change them.
