Major update to Crash Override!


I knew Anita Sarkeesian and Zoe Quinn were going to do this, this is so fucking obvious that a four year old could have called it. But this is dangerous, very dangerous.

This is why I am going to be investigating as hard as I can, how far up these people go. Because we need to know how to defeat these people, otherwise we are going to be slaves, and the book 1984 is going to be reality.

The excerpt underneath is not good.

TELL YOU SOME OF THE STUFF I’VE BEEN DOING FOR THE LAST FEW MONTHS 😀 This isn’t all of it by any means, but it’s something pretty cool!Crash Override is proud to announce sponsorship from Feminist Frequency. By accepting tax-deductible donations through this partnership, Crash Override will be able to greatly expand operations and assist more people, all for free. Together, Feminist Frequency and Crash Override will work to make a safer internet for everyone. We’ve been going through some major internal changes are we grow, and funding will go a long way to help us provide better training, security, tools, and programs both internally and externally. We’ve also developed a new tool we call COACH – Crash Override’s Automated Cybersecurity Helper. Co-founder Zoe Quinn used the same tools she uses to make games to make an interactive, easy-to-follow security checklist that allows anyone to secure their accounts, remove personal information, and protect their privacy at their own pace. While we love having in-depth and comprehensive guides, they don’t work for everyone. After looking at success rates from manually walking someone through locking their accounts down, versus just giving them a guide, it became clear that we could help a lot more people if we were able to take them through step by step. Since we can’t be everywhere at once, why not make a program to help others do some basic digital self-defense at their own pace? We’re hoping that COACH can use the strength of interactivity to fill in the gaps and assist more people.Plus, cute robot mascot:Check it out!The partnership and COACH aren’t the only new things. We’ve overhauled our website to better reflect who we are as an organization. New logos, new aesthetics, new everything. Functionality is a lot better now too – not only are there some cool new accessibility features, but everything is cleaner and easier to find now. Since launching in January 2015, we’ve assisted over 1,000 people with our casework and countless more with the guides in our public resource center. Crash Override has  advocated for our clients to tech giants like Twitter and Google, and in the public eye at Congress and the United Nations. In the next year, we will continue to seek out and build relationships with more tech platforms, advocacy organizations and activists, policy makers, and influential voices. Lots more to come soon!
