Encrypt All The Things

HTTPS Everywhere is a Firefox and Chrome extension that encrypts your communications with many major websites, making your browsing more secure.

TrueCrypt is free open-source disk encryption software for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. In case an attacker forces you to reveal the password, TrueCrypt provides plausible deniability. In contrast to file encryption, data encryption performed by TrueCrypt is real-time (on-the-fly), automatic, transparent, needs very little memory, and does not involve temporary unencrypted files.

Cryptocat lets you chat with privacy. Easy to use web app that encrypts your conversations. It's open source and you already know how to use it.

ProXPN. The easiest to use free VPN. Quickly secure your internet connection and unblock any website. Works with PCs, Macs, iOS, Android, and more.

OpenPGP.js. This project aims to provide an Open Source OpenPGP library in JavaScript so it can be used on virtually every device. Instead of other plugins that are aimed at using e.g. NPAPI (meaning they are intended to run native code), OpenPGP.js is meant to bypass this requirement (i.e. people will not have to install gpg on their machines in order to use the software). The idea is to implement all the needed OpenPGP functionality in a JavaScript library, to reuse it in other projects and to provide example applications and browser plugins. It should allow you to sign, encrypt, decrypt, and verify any kind of text - in particular e-mails - as well as managing keys.

Tor is free software and an open network that helps you defend against a form of network surveillance that threatens personal freedom and privacy, confidential business activities and relationships, and state security known as traffic analysis.

BitTorrent Sync. Automatically sync files via secure, distributed technology.

Join Mozilla, the EFF, Free Press, Access, Demand Progress and others in asking Congress to restore our rights to privacy.
