How to use Skype safely

ICTD Asia has released a detailed guide for activists on how to use Skype safely. Like all good sources of knowledge, it’s in wiki format, so I encourage readers to add their own ideas. And of course, flame anyone who disagrees with you.

(Wikipedia and I have a… “special” relationship.)

Suggested Amendments:

  • If you’re not going to wear pants, don’t stand up to reach for things. You will blow your cover!
  • People can tell when you’re browsing instead of listening. Nodding and saying “mmm” periodically does not qualify.
  • If you’re going to bring your laptop into the bathroom, disable video before you answer a call. Just trust me on this one.
