Connected devices, geolocation, trackers, browsing history, social networks… The report is without call: you are permanently tracked by your connected devices. And the digital data you leave behind you is used and sold by data brokers. Want to regain control over your personal data? EPFL Library offers you a Data Detox cure.

Intended for all audiences, the Data Detox exhibition explains in a simple way how and why it is essential to regain control over your personal data. You start with a health check of your digital identity. Accounts forgotten or lost on social networks, browsers infested with tracking spies: a big cleanup is needed. You will also become aware that the Internet has been completely centralized by large commercial groups that have a monopoly on the data circulating on it: your personal data!

The route of this interactive exhibition, divided into four themes (Geolocation, Browsers, Social Networks and Alternative Solutions), is punctuated with exercises to be carried out on the tablets made available or directly on your connected devices. Download the brochure to make all the settings at home, at your own pace. The last stage of the exhibition offers you alternative and concrete tools and solutions to continue browsing the Internet in a secure way, while protecting your personal data.
