Welcome to Tinfoil!


Tinfoil is a forum for discussing and learning about journalism, media activism, and information security.
Tinfoil is an open forum, meaning it's publicly visible and anyone can get involved. With that in mind, be careful about what information you share. We aim to create a respectful and inclusive environment. That means:

  • Consider peoples' needs—not just security needs
  • Be nice, don't not be nice
  • Criticize ideas, not people
  • If you see a problem, flag it

Please read our community guidelines and feel free to introduce yourself! If you're new to digital security and want to get started, consider reading this thread: Security questions for beginners.

If you have any questions or suggestions, reach out on Twitter at @tinfoilpress, or tinfoilhelp on gmail. You can also send us an encrypted email.
