Researcher Welfare 1: Privacy and Security

This page points users to tools and resources and additional reading on a core component of online extremism and terrorism researchers’ well-being: maintaining their (online) privacy and security.

You will notice that most of the available resources are targeted not at academic researchers, but at activists, journalists, and others, but are nevertheless directly relevant because they speak to many of the same issues faced by researchers in our field.

If you are familiar with additional resources on these topics—especially if you have personally found them useful—that could be added to this page, please drop us a line at
