Here's Edward Snowden's guide to protecting your online privacy

Edward Snowden knows a thing or two about online security. We can guarantee his password isn't "123456" (we tried it on his Facebook account - no luck).

Still hiding out in deepest darkest Russia (Moscow), the NSA whistleblower met with The Intercept's Micah Lee to discuss how to reclaim your online privacy.

He provided the following four steps that anyone can carry out without a detailed knowledge of encryption systems or computer programming.

Thanks, Ed. Now on an unrelated matter, what was the name of your first pet? And your mother's maiden name?
