Identity

The Internet Society works in both the technical and policy arenas, supporting the development of tools and policies that empower people to manage their online identities and the ‘digital footprint’ they leave behind.

Online Tutorials: Getting to Know Your Footprint
It’s your Internet and your digital footprint is one of the most important things on it. But how much of it is under your control, or even visible to you?

We have nine tutorials to help you not only learn about your digital footprint, but help you make the right choices for you. Watch them today!

Online Identity Tutorials
We’ve developed three interactive tutorials to help educate and inform anyone who would like to find out more about making informed choices about our unique online identities.

Watch all three tutorials and find out how you can better understand your online identity and be empowered to share what you want, when you want.

Our Work
The Internet Society’s Trust and Identity initiative includes dedicated outreach activities on identity and privacy. These are aimed at technology vendors and adopters, to encourage privacy-respecting technology deployment, and at policymakers and legislators to provide the necessary counter balances to commercial expediency. The Trust and Identity initiative also aims to ensure that users are better informed about the benefits of good online privacy, so that they can make better privacy choices and make use of appropriate privacy-enhancing tools online.
