Cybersecurity expert Eva Galperin helps debunk (and confirm!) some common myths about cybersecurity. Is the government watching you through your computer camera? Does Google read all your Gmail? Does a strong password protect you from hackers? Will encryption keep my data safe? Eva answers all these questions and much more.
Updated 8/20/2020: A previous version of this video incorrectly stated that Google scans Gmail data to target ads. Google stopped this practice in 2017.
Eva Galperin is the Director of Cybersecurity at the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
