The Electronic Frontier Foundation is a non-profit digital rights group that has been working to promote online civil liberties since 1990.

Electronic Frontier Alliance

The Electronic Frontier Alliance is a grassroots network of community and campus organizations across the United States working to educate our neighbors about the importance of digital rights.


As a member organization of the EFA, we believe that technology should support the intellectual freedom at the heart of a democratic society. In the digital age, that entails advancing:

  1. Free Expression

    People should be able to speak their minds to whoever will listen.

  2. Security

    Technology should be trustworthy and answer to its users.

  3. Privacy

    Technology should allow private and anonymous speech, and allow users to set their own parameters about what to share with whom.

  4. Creativity

    Technology should promote progress by allowing people to build on the ideas, creations, and inventions of others.

  5. Access to Knowledge

    Curiosity should be rewarded, not stifled.

We uphold these principles by fighting for transparency and freedom in culture, code, and law.
