How to contact us securely
Good Law Project uses SecureDrop and Threema to allow individuals to securely send us information and documents. The systems protect your identity, even from us, providing you follow the instructions below.
How it works:
Threema is a secure messenger. It guarantees full anonymity: in contrast to other messengers, your identity in Threema does not depend on a phone number. Each Threema user gets a randomly generated, 8-digit Threema ID when starting the app for the first time. This ID is your unique address in Threema and makes it possible to use Threema completely anonymously, without disclosing any personal information like your phone number or email address.
Download the app here to get started and contact us securely on our Threema ID: 5CSHYRU5
SecureDrop servers are under the physical control of Good Law Project. SecureDrop does not record any information that could identify you, like your IP address, information about your browser, computer, or operating system. All Good Law Project will see is the information you send to us and a unique code name.
All material submitted through SecureDrop is automatically encrypted. Good Law Project will decrypt and read each message on a computer that has never and will never be connected to the internet.
What to do:
- Before you begin, we strongly advise that you use a public WiFi network, like a cafe or public library, instead of your home or work network, which could be tied back to your identity. We also advise that you use your own device, rather than a work phone or laptop.
- Download and install the Tor Browser from https://www.torproject.org. This will allow you to visit our SecureDrop page, which operates as a Tor “hidden service” and is not accessible via standard internet browsers.
- To access our SecureDrop page, open the Tor Browser and copy and paste this into the address bar: q4hcmq2hecm27nsfnh2v566mgcludcfadzxgchpoqgvxomfcalqxafyd.onion
- When the page loads, you will find further instructions on how to submit messages and documents to Good Law Project.
- When you make your first submission, you will receive a unique codename. Remember this codename as it’s the only way you can make a further submission and see communication from Good Law Project.
- If you would like to submit further information or read our response, follow the above instructions to access our SecureDrop page again and click on the “Log in” button, under “Return Visit”. Enter your codename. On the following page, you will be able to make a new submission and read our replies. We recommend deleting all replies once you have read them, to help protect your identity.
- Always log out and close the Tor page once you have finished reading or submitting information, especially if using a public network or a device someone else could have access to.
