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 :-)

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.
