The Smart Girl's Guide to Privacy

San Francisco, CA (June 26, 2015) — Celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton aren’t the only women vulnerable to malicious hackers and blatant violations of privacy. The list of potential dangers women face online is endless and overwhelming, from simple identity theft to the worst kinds of harassment, like stalking or even revenge porn.

The good news is that even if one’s privacy has already been compromised, it’s not too late to do damage control, and in The Smart Girl's Guide to Privacy (No Starch Press, August 2015, $17.95), award-winning author and investigative journalist Violet Blue shows women how to protect themselves from, and fight back against, online predators. (Read about Violet's inspiration for writing the book here.)

In The Smart Girl's Guide to Privacy readers learn invaluable, practical ways to protect themselves in today's risk-filled online world, like how to conduct routine personal privacy checks, delete personal online content, protect or repair their reputations, set up safe social media profiles, and guard against privacy violations before they happen.

According to Violet Blue, "Traditionally, women haven’t been taught to stand up for themselves the way men have—whether online or anyplace else—but this is changing. Today, women are standing up to stalkers and being more careful than ever with personal information. We’re getting fierce, angry, and strategic."

Ignorance isn’t bliss when it comes to online privacy. The Smart Girl's Guide to Privacy promises to educate women (and men) about the risks to our privacy. Learn how to protect yourself online and take back what’s yours.
