MOBILE SOCIAL WORK

ideas, innovations and apps for social work in the age of smartphones and social media 

SaferMobile helps you use mobile technology more securely.

SaferMobile helps activists, human rights defenders, and journalists understand the security risks of mobile technology and use mobile tech more securely for their work.

 Why is this important? Activists, rights defenders, and journalists use mobile devices for reporting, organizing, mobilizing, and documenting. Mobile phones provide countless benefits — they are relatively low cost and allow for increased efficiencies and vast reach, for example — but they also present enormous risks to rights defenders and activists. Mobile communication is inherently insecure and exposes rights defenders and those working in sensitive environments to risks that are not easy to detect or overcome.
