Privacy Policy

At Forbes, we want individuals with newsworthy information to come forward and communicate with our journalists free from outside surveillance, especially when what they're communicating is so sensitive that it must be sent anonymously. We've created SafeSource to offer that extra protection. You can use it to send files or tips to our online dropbox without having your identity known--even to us.

By routing your messages through the Tor anonymity network and avoiding any cookies or other records of visitors, SafeSource is designed to protect both the content of your communications and your identity more strongly than traditional email.

SafeSource is based on the open-source, security-audited architecture known as SecureDrop, created by James Dolan and the late Aaron Swartz and funded in part by the Freedom of the Press Foundation.

How To Use SafeSource
  • Simply visit and follow the directions to download Tor.
  • Then run Tor, which launches the Tor Browser, and copy the following into its address bar:http://2xtsq3ekkxjpfm4l.onion/
  • From there you'll be provided with more instructions and a passphrase for your personal SafeSource account so that you can begin communicating anonymously with our reporters.
  • We'll work to investigate any tips or documents you provide so that your information has the maximum impact on and in the pages of Forbes Magazine.
