Project Secret Identity was launched with the support of the Southeastern Browncoats, the Harry Potter Alliance, the Baker Street Babes, Wattpad, and the Organization for Transformative Works. All weekend, cosplayers at Dragon Con have been photographed holding up pro-privacy slogans to raise awareness about issues surrounding mass surveillance, Internet anonymity, and other aspects of online privacy.
