Safety First: Making Public WiFi Work for Users – World Wide Web Foundation
How often do you use public WiFi? Are you reading this from a public Wifi network at a cafe right now? If so, think about what information you shared to log in to the network. Are you aware of any risks of information sharing for public WiFi access?  While public WiFi enables wider public internet access, there are areas of potential concern regarding user privacy, security, and safety. Thankfully, there are safeguards — and ways to make public access work for users beyond these.
As public WiFi networks increase in popularity, governments need to ensure that privacy, security and safety concerns are addressed. Policy guidelines for public WiFi networks should ideally be developed via public consultation. As a way forward, we’ve laid out the most common problems users face when using public WiFi and have developed these guidelines as a good starting framework.

Opinion: In Defence of Net Neutrality | Sir Tim Berners-Lee – World Wide Web Foundation
This opinion piece, written by our Founder and web inventor, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, was originally published in the Wall Street Journal.
As the battle around net neutrality rages again, we need to take stock, and ask ourselves: What is the debate really about, and why should business leaders and entrepreneurs care?
Businesses of all sizes create value, jobs and investment opportunities online. Their innovation and value creation are wholly dependent on access to internet connectivity. Net neutrality is the principle that all content must be treated without discrimination, be it commercial or political. Neutral networks are critical to ensuring fair, open competition in the content market and driving America’s growth in the digital era.

White paper series | Opportunities and risks in emerging technologies – World Wide Web Foundation
To achieve our vision of digital equality, we need to understand how new technologies are shaping society; where they present opportunities to make people’s lives better, and indeed where they threaten to create harm. To this end, we have commissioned a series of white papers examining three key digital trends: artificial intelligence, algorithms and control of personal data. The papers focus on low and middle-income countries, which are all too often overlooked in debates around the impacts of emerging technologies.
The series addresses each of these three digital issues, looking at how they are impacting people’s lives and identifying steps that governments, companies and civil society organisations can take to limit the harms, and maximise benefits, for citizens.

Understanding the digital trends shaping our world – World Wide Web Foundation
The Web Foundation fights for digital equality — a world where everyone has access to the web and can use it to improve their lives. To achieve this vision, we need to understand how new technologies are shaping society; where they present opportunities to make people’s lives better, and indeed where they threaten to create harm. Nowhere is this more critical than in low and middle-income countries, which are rarely the focus of research on digital trends and their impacts.
Three transformative trends
To better grasp how emerging technologies are changing our world — focusing on low and middle-income countries — we have commissioned a series of white papers looking into three of the most important digital trends we face: artificial intelligence, algorithms and control of personal data.
The series addresses each of these issues, looking at how they are impacting people’s lives and identifying steps that governments, companies and civil society organisations can take to limit the harms, and maximise benefits, for everyone.

Explained: the Dark Web - Malwarebytes Labs | Malwarebytes Labs
You may have seen the Dark Web referenced in popular TV shows and have gotten the wrong idea, or if you already knew about it, you may have snorted in derision. It’s also sometimes called the Deep Web, when in fact the Dark Web is only a part of the Deep Web.
Terminology
Surface Web is what we would call the regular World Wide Web that is indexed and where websites are easy to find.
The Deep Web is the unindexed part of the Web. Actually, anything that a search engine can’t find.
The Dark Web is intentionally hidden, anonymous, and widely known for illicit activities.
Maybe it’s a good idea to clear up some of the misconceptions about the Dark Web for those that are not in the know. That should tell you a lot about what it really is.
