In this day and age, online safety and privacy is more important than ever before. The threat of doxxing, phishing and fraud is looming over everyone, but it is not practical to avoid using the Internet. An up-to-date Ubuntu installation already does a lot for user's safety, but one can still take a couple of steps to make themselves less appealing for a potential attacker.

The topics we're going to touch on include, but is not limited to:

  • Using snap's built-in security and permissions to prevent tracking,
  • Basic desktop and server hardening,
  • Integrating tools such as password managers, hardware authentication devices, etc. into your daily life
