Steps to Protect Your Online Identity

Human Rights First has developed resources to help Afghans protect their online identities from the Taliban -- including deleting digital histories and evading the misuse of biometric data.

Our guides are available in English, Dari, and Pashto.

Guidelines on Going Into Hiding

Human rights activists in Afghanistan are asking for guidance on how to stay safe from the Taliban and from others who would do them harm until they can find a way out of the country. While activists themselves are best-suited to assess their risk and make an informed decision about their safety, Human Rights First has compiled guidelines for going into hiding.

Take Action: Tell Washington

The Taliban has seized control of Afghanistan, stranding America's Afghan allies and members of civil society like human rights defenders, women, and other at-risk groups. 

Please help by contacting your elected officials and urging action to save our allies and protect our national honor as the U.S. departs Afghanistan.
