SecureDrop is a whistleblower submission system that media organizations use to securely accept documents from and communicate with anonymous sources. Originally written by Aaron Swartz, it has been maintained by Freedom of the Press Foundation since 2013. Dozens of news organizations including the Associated Press, Al Jazeera, the New York Times, the Washington Post, and many others now use SecureDrop.

We welcome contributions of all kinds! In addition to writing code and documentation (SecureDrop is written in Python, Ansible, Bash and HTML/SASS/JavaScript), we also need help translating SecureDrop into other languages. If you have design or UX skills, we would love your help with the upcoming SecureDrop Workstation based on Qubes OS.

If you’d like to get started early, check out for an overview of how to contribute.

Pizza will be provided, and there will be vegan and vegetarian options!
