A big thank you for your help in translating SecureDrop in Arabic :-) You entered the SecureDrop hall of fame :

#securedrop #contributopia

SecureDrop 0.5.1 is out, with new translations in Arabic, Italian, Turkish and Chinese. And European instances in Norway, Belgium, France and Germany were updated.


Fluent in Arabic ? Nothing planned for this week-end ? Here is an idea: translate the last 23 strings of SecureDrop to perfection so it can be released next week :-)


SecureDrop always welcomes new contributors ! Good at writing? Help us out with documentation. Check out our guide to get started.


Thanks to Freddy Martinez there will be a #SecureDrop session at #34c3. See you there !

Is there a good Free Software iOS app for OTP ?

Other than FreeOTP (because I'm told it works on the latest iOS; it's not pretty on anything newer than iPhone 5s/SE) and Google Authenticator (because it is proprietary and has access to internet for whatever reason).

It would be great to verify that the FreeOTP available for iOS works to authenticate with SecureDrop. It can be done by scanning the QRCode at and trying to login as user: journalist password: WEjwn8ZyczDhQSK24YKM8C9a on the demo site:

Is there a OTP Free Software mobile application available for both Android and iOS ?

I'm about to update the SecureDrop documentation to recommend FreeOTP for Android (because Google Authenticator is no longer Free Software). And it would be easier to recommend something that also works on iOS.

#securedrop #alerte

Come work on SecureDrop at the Electronic Frontier Foundation at 815 Eddy St in San Francisco on Thursday December 7th at 6-9pm! SecureDrop is a whistleblower submission system.


SecureDrop is in code freeze and entering QA. Release with translations in Arabic, Dutch, French, German, Norwegian, Portuguese and Spanish will be published next week :-)


The two things I like most when running an infrastructure as a program is that when debugging you can ssh to a machine and fix things instead of running a debugger.

This makes our work designing the community infrastructure for SecureDrop an enjoyable experience.

If you’re at #MozFest on Oct. 29th in London, come see the SecureDrop lead developer @redshiftzero give a talk on anonymous whistleblowing:


The proposal for the FOSDEM 2018 "Privacy and Surveillance Self-Defense with FLOSS" devroom was submitted.

If you're curious, the complete proposal is at and the forum thread will be updated as we receive updates.

The game is on ! Security oriented minds can now claim bounties if they find vulnerabilities in SecureDrop 🐲


@fredix il s'agit de srm ( de secure-delete ) tout ce qui est mis dans un répertoire particulier. Dans le cadre de SecureDrop l'idée est d'effacer aussi complètement que possible un document pour éviter les traces qui pourraient être récupérées en re-assemblant les morceaux de fichiers.

Si c'était juste rm l'application pourrait le faire, c'est assez rapide. Mais srm peut prendre vraiment beaucoup de temps et il faut que ce soit fait en tache de fond.

Are there plans for a "privacy" devroom at FOSDEM this year ? It would make sense for to submit a talk in such a devroom. Last year devrooms did not fit, except security maybe ?

@taziden do you know about that ?
