The Guardian recently launched a secure platform for whistleblowers to send confidential documents to the newspaper’s reporters. 

The launch comes a year after The Guardian posted the first of a series of NSA documents leaked by Edward Snowden, a former NSA contractor. 

The SecureDrop open-source whistleblowing platform provides a way for sources to submit data and documents, while remaining anonymous, if they choose to, while avoiding the most common forms of online tracking.
