SXSW (South by Southwest) is a set of film, interactive, and music festivals and conferences that take place annually in Austin, Texas in mid-March.
Each year, thousands of entries are submitted. The topics that get the most votes from the community, the advisory board, and the SXSW staff will get invited to present at this prestigious event.
As you know, Anchorfree is a champion of internet privacy. Our Hotspot Shield VPN protects users’ privacy on the Internet by encrypting all your communications.

- What should and shouldn’t be shared with companies, governments and technology?
- What can policy makers, businesses and technologists do to ensure consumers are better informed about privacy issues?
