When Edward Snowden first contacted journalist Glenn Greenwald in early 2013 about leaking thousands of classified documents, he wanted to use powerful encryption to ensure that intelligence agencies like his former employer, the National Security Agency, couldn’t intercept the conversation and leaks.

Problem was, Greenwald didn’t know how to use PGP encryption, so Snowden created an instructional 12 minute video for Greenwald complete with diagrams and voice obfuscation, so that he could learn how to protect his communications. Snowden can be seen using GPG4Win and Tor, two well-known privacy tools.

Watch the video below and learn from Snowden how to protect your own online communications.
