SecureDrop is an open-source whistleblower submission system supported by the Freedom of the Press Foundation. Contacting us through our encrypted SecureDrop server is a way to share documents and messages with ICIJ that allows you to protect your identity, even from us.

When you use our SecureDrop service, we will not collect any identifying information from you (like your IP address, location, or browser details). All information you provide will be stored encrypted, and will only be decrypted on an air-gapped machine that never connects to any networks.

There are a number of precautions you can and should take to protect yourself before using our SecureDrop system.

WhatsApp enforces end-to-end encryption by default on messages, using technology developed in collaboration with Open Whisper Systems.

According to WhatsApp, only you and the person you’re communicating with can read what is sent, and nobody in between, not even WhatsApp. Messages are not stored on WhatsApp’s servers.
