Tails is an entire operating system which preserves your privacy and provides anonymity out-of-the-box. With Tails, you can use the Internet anonymously and circumvent censorship. You'll be in control about the traces you want to leave and those that you'd rather see forgotten. Installed onto a USB key, Tails discreetly fits into your pocket.
For the past 9 years, we've been working on making digital security accessible to those who need it most. Counting more than 20,000 boots per day, we've proved that Tails is a reliable and successful tool that helps diverse people around the world to be safe online every day. But we think that the immense work we've done until now should have an even bigger impact on the world!
Through this DuckDuckGo donation challenge you can help us improve Tails further. We want to let more people in need of usable privacy know that Tails exists and make it even easier for them to get it running. We plan to bring trustable mobile messengers to Tails and to improve our documentation (currently available in seven languages).
Even if you're not a Tails user yourself, your donation will help human rights defenders, journalists, activists, victims of domestic violence and many others who rely on Tails every day.
Another detail that makes our work awesome is that we contribute our improvements back to the free software community. When donating to Tails, you're supporting an entire ecosystem which we are part of.
Tails is being recommended by Reporters Without Borders, Edward Snowden, Secure Drop and others. We've received the Mozilla Open Source Software award (2016), the APC FLOSS price (2014), the Access Innovation Prize (2014) and the OpenITP award (2013).
Once this challenge is over you can still donate through our website :)
