October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month.
The theme this year is “Our Shared Responsibility.” And to illustrate how much we rely on each other to keep the Internet safe, we’re asking you to join us in a little experiment. The idea came Jan and Leonard, two fine F-Secure fellows inspired by the Facebook Celebrity Doppelganger phenomenon.

Turn your Facebook profile picture to an ASCII image by 10/10/10 to spread cybersecurity awareness.
What’s an ASCII image?
ASCII is the American Standard Code for Information Interchange, and ASCII Art was born out of the necessity in the pre-graphics era of computing.

Using ASCII is a tribute to the ingenuity that made the digital technological revolution possible. Here’s what an ASCII image as a profile pic looks like on our Facebook page.
How do I convert my profile image into ASCII art?
