The ExpressVPN Future of Privacy Scholarship was set up to raise awareness of internet privacy and security. The internet is transforming our education system. The technologies utilized by schools across the world are not totally protected or private, and schools themselves have executed their own surveillance systems to trace what their students do online. As internet-ready devices escalate in classrooms worldwide, so do threats to the privacy of the individuals who use them. Awareness of online security and a presumption of fundamental privacy rights are more important than ever.
