How to Protect Your Digital Privacy if 'Roe v. Wade' Falls | WIRED

| No Comments


A critical component of Roe v. Wade is its determination that the "right of privacy ... is broad enough to encompass a woman's decision whether to terminate her pregnancy." But comprehensive digital privacy is challenging to achieve in an age of widespread user-tracking, location-tracking, and corporate data retention. 

Organizations like Digital Defense Fund and Electronic Frontier Foundation offer detailed guides for steps you can take to protect your digital privacy while researching and seeking an abortion or related services. When it comes to a potential dismantling of Roe, though, it remains to be seen how far criminalization will extend in different states and what exactly the landscape will look like. In the meantime, researchers and reproductive health experts note that incorporating a few basic privacy strategies could go a long way later.
