Important announcement from @torproject about the deprecation of v2 onion services:

blog.torproject.org/v2-depreca

v3 onion addresses are recognizable by their 56 character identifier. They provide better security and anonymity protections than the previous version.

If you're running a SecureDrop instance and are still on v2, please see our docs for switching to v3, or enabling v3 alongside v2.

Tails 4.8 is out: tails.boum.org/news/version_4.

It disables the Unsafe Browser by default, adds a beta feature of the Persistent Storage to save the settings from the Welcome Screen, and more.

Hi folks! 9 years ago (to the day), the late Aaron Swartz made the first commit to SecureDrop, which was then called DeadDrop. Today the project is used by >70 media orgs around the world.

It's an open source whistleblower submission platform that uses the Tor network to protect source anonymity. We're also working on a next-generation integrated workstation for journalists based on Qubes OS:
github.com/freedomofpress/secu

We're happy to be here!
