Tails - donation campaign for 2019

Tails - donation campaign for 2019

Sunday 14 October 2018 > français

Tails-news: donation campaign for 2019 begins today.

Every day, Tails helps thousands of people to safely use their computers online and offline.

Tails is available for free because we believe that nobody should have to pay to be protected from surveillance and censorship. Tails is free software because if our source code was closed, there would be no way of verifying that it is secure.

In today’s Internet, the most rewarded economical strategy is to rely on advertisement and tracking. But one of our reasons to exist is also to protect you against targeted advertisement, and we obviously don’t want to rely on these sources of revenue. The number of people using Tails is constantly growing and so is our responsibility to provide the easiest and safest tool possible. In 2019, we want Tails to be smoother to install, upgrade, use and to include even more security protection.

Making Tails costs us around 200 000€ each year. This is a really small number given all the work done, and many of us still do a lot of work for free in addition to paid hours.

Tails is used more than 20 000 times every day:

  • Journalists and whistleblowers use Tails to denounce the wrongdoings of governments and corporations.
  • Human-rights defenders use Tails to avoid censorship and report human-rights violations.
  • Domestic violence survivors use Tails to escape surveillance in their home.
    Privacy-concerned citizens use Tails to avoid online tracking.

If everyone using Tails donated $6, our fundraiser would be done in one day.
The price of a USB stick is all we need.

But not everyone using Tails can donate.

When you do, you are offering to many others who need it, the very precious tool that is Tails. We know that secure tools need to be free software to be trustworthy. That’s why we are giving out Tails for free but asking for your help to protect and sustain it. Donations from individuals, like you, are our most valuable funding as they make Tails more independent from government and corporate funding. We are a very small non-profit and our yearly budget is ridiculously small compared to the value of Tails.
