Secure communication

Signal

Signal is a free app for smartphones (iPhone and Android) and desktop computers that enables users to send and receive encrypted text messages, phone calls and video chats. The company that makes the software doesn’t store metadata on its users. Both parties must have Signal installed on their devices.

You can reach us using Signal at: +1 646 689 5001

WhatsApp

WhatsApp is a free app owned by Facebook that enables users to send and receive encrypted text messages, phone calls and video chats. It can be used on smartphones (iPhone and Android) and via a desktop client. The program collects some metadata on its users, and allows some data-sharing with Facebook.

Please note that no strategy is 100% effective at keeping information or communications secure. Be sure you choose the one that best suits your needs.

Mail

You can also send us information through the post. If you are sending particularly sensitive information, you may wish to use a public mailbox away from your home and office.
