Personal Security Checklist
You can view the full checklist in
The easiest method for consuming the checklist is via our website, at: digital-defense.io
Here you can browse lists, filter by your threat model and tick items off once complete (plus, there's pretty charts to make you feel good about your progress ☺️).
The source for the website is in
The site is built with Qwik, using TypeScript and some components from DaisyUI.
To run the app locally, or to make code changes, you'll need Node and Git installed.
- Grab the code:
- Navigate into source:
- Install dependencies:
- Start the development server:
Alternatively, just open this repo is Code Spaces, where everything is already configured and ready to go.
To deploy the app, follow the developing steps above, then run
yarn build.static. You can then deploy it by copying the
dist/ directory to any CDN, web server or static hosting provider of your choice.
Alternatively, fork the repo and import into your providers dashboard. Or use the link below for an easy 1-click deploy 😉
We also make all the data available via a free API, which you can use however you wish.
All endpoints are documented in our OpenAPI spec, you can view these and try them out via our Swagger docs.
/api/checklists /api/checklists/[name-or-index] /api/checklists/[name]/[point-index] /api/search/[searchterm]
All checklist data is stored in
personal-security-checklist.yml. This is pulled in the website at build-time, and referenced by the API, and is also dynamically inserted into the markdown Checklist page.
So if you only wish to make changes to the data, this is the only file you need to edit.
Important: When submitting your pull request, provide references backing up any information that you're adding/amending/removing.
For modifying the website or API source, see the developing sections above for instructions on running locally.
