Security checklist

A checklist for staying safe on the internet.


This project is the result of a conversation started during a recent episode of the Design Details Podcast and a subsequent tweet by Michael Knepprath.


This project should be considered a living document of resources and applications that improve people's digital security and privacy. Contributions, edits, and extensions are welcome!

If you have resources to add to existing sections, please open a pull request.

  • Aim for reputable sources for guides and news coverage.
  • If adding an app, please include links to as many platforms as possible. See config/*.js for examples of how data is formatted.
  • Try to use approachable human-readable language. Remember that even non-technical folks need to stay safe online.

If you would like to create a new category of security and privacy resources, please open an issue first with your proposed category. Please explain why this additional category should stand alone from other existing sections.

Run this locally

  1. $ git clone
  2. $ cd security-checklist
  3. $ npm install
  4. $ npm run dev
  5. View the running app in your browser at http://localhost:3000


You can deploy this project yourself with ZEIT + Now by configuring now.json and running $ now.


Please open issues at any time for general feedback, or you can reach me directly at
