January Privacy Month Campaign is a community led campaign/initiative to celebrate International Data Privacy Day. The campaign was originated by Mozilla India in 2016 and is intended to be a global campaign each year. It is a campaign where communities from all over the world come together to learn, share and spread awareness about current trends and future issues for privacy and steps that we can take against privacy infringements.

The campaign can be observed in two ways:

  • An online presence of the campaign with daily posts on relevant content.
  • A series of offline in-person privacy-focused events.

Volunteers are welcome to help with online posts, events, teaching kits, localization of content and/or any other resources that might be relevant to the campaign.


We strongly believe that it is necessary for the people who use the web stay safe by understanding the impact of their digital footprint. We intend to share the best practices and create awareness in order to promote privacy and data protection. Join us if you wish to make an impact in the lives of netizens !

How will we achieve this mission

  • Online 31 Privacy Tips

This serves the very essence of the online campaign. The goal is to provide a privacy tip each day for 31 days. On an average, a person will likely need to spend 10 minuntes or less on each of these. Ideally, the tip would be in the form of a short video, but could be in any another format. Tips will be shared through social media, such as Facebook and Twitter. The timeframe is the whole month of January. Daily online posts will originate from Mozilla India starting on January 1st and will be shared and retweeted by volunteers and supporters around the world. The list is updated daily with Tip of the day and related posts from #privacymonth & #advocate4privacy for later reference.

  • Privacy Events

In addition, the community will be hosting in-person privacy events throughout the month of January. The team hopes that this project will go global and include Mozilla community privacy events from around the world.

  • Social Media Promotions

This campaign will be extensively promoted and shared via various social media channels. Twitter/Facebook hashtags: #PrivacyMonth #Advocate4Privacy Share, retweet and support Mozilla India Twitter posts. Support and share stories from Mozilla India Facebook Page. Mozilla India Facebook Group

  • Localization

We intend to spread the mission of this campaign through various communities all over the world. You can help us localize the tools. We are in the process of localizing the resources.
