The software uses the TOR Browser/network to communicate anonymously without fear of repercussion by sharing data to journalists. Many respected world wide news sites use the application therefore it is considered very safe and trusted. Some of them include: Canadian Broadcast Corporation, Radio-Canada, Forbes, Washington Post, USA Today, and Buzzfeed News. SecureDrop can be compared to a standard Contact Form on a news site but a much more secure and private version.
