What is a CryptoParty?

Posted by on Nov 1, 2014

CryptoParty is about empowering everyone to take control over their own digital privacy.

CryptoParty represents a movement to demystify the jargon and level the playing field between those who understand the necessity of personal security and non-technical users. The difficulty in presenting this paradigm is the divide between security and convenience as non-technical users would be confused by highly jargonized papers and inefficient application documentation.

Recently, applications developed by the Open Source community have made leaps in user experience and design, as easy-to-navigate interfaces for strong privacy technologies have emerged. CryptoParty is the bridge between hackers who live security and non-technical users who want the same level of protection applied to their online/offline activities that was once restricted to those ‘in the know’.
