Security considerations

  • If you are storing your supporters' details in a database be sure that this data is stored safely and securely and is backed up frequently.
  • If you are using viral techniques to spread information about a mobilisation you can't guarantee that your opponents won't also receive the message.
  • Be careful using your mobile phone during demonstrations; if it is confiscated by the authorities they will have access to your contacts. Unfortunately such confiscations are becoming increasingly common.
