Share Tips With Us Securely

We want to hear from you. Here are the ways you can reach us securely.

In 23 countries, the journalists of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty provide what many people cannot get locally: uncensored news, responsible discussion, and an open debate. As part of these efforts, we regularly investigate reports of wrongdoing and abuse of power.

Do you have a tip we should be investigating? Do you have documents or other materials we should see? Here, you can contact us to provide evidence or information to help us advance our work.

We read everything you submit, but we don’t have the capacity to respond personally to every message we receive.

A word of caution: Before you submit anything, please consider who else may be able to monitor what you’re doing on your device.

What Makes a Good Tip?

  • We report on credible evidence of corruption, money laundering, human rights abuses, environmental destruction, state-sponsored crimes and cybercrimes, and abuses of political office. We don’t report on unfounded rumors lacking evidence.
  • Let us know if you want to be identified. We will use our best efforts to remove identifying information and metadata from any evidence that you submit to us.
  • Has this been previously reported? Please let us know where and when, if possible.
  • Include any evidence you have. This could include text messages, e-mails, photos, videos, or code.
  • Let us know if something is time sensitive.
  • Please be as specific and concise as you can.


Your e-mails can be subject to review by the authorities in some countries. Please do not send feedback or press releases through these channels. If your device is compromised, encrypted e-mail communications may be compromised as well.

Signal Messages

+420 601 212 550

Signal retains only the phone number you used when you first registered with the service, and when you were last active. It does not store metadata of the people you are communicating with. If you are concerned about someone knowing that you have contacted us, you can enter this Signal number directly into the app without adding it to your address book. Also, consider setting messages so that they will be automatically deleted after an amount of time determined by you.

If your phone is compromised, communications using Signal may be compromised as well.

Calls to this number will not be answered.


Access GlobaLeaks here.

Global Leaks is a more secure and anonymous way to share information or files with us. Used properly, it shields your identity even from us. We are unable to record your IP address or information about your browser, computer, or operating system. All files submitted to our GlobaLeaks server are encrypted as they are received; submissions are initially decrypted and viewed on a computer that has never been connected to the Internet. Unless you give us your name or other identifying information, we will not know who you are.

For the highest level of privacy, we further recommend that you use Tor and visit our secure submission page using a public WiFi network, rather than your home or work Internet connection. For extra security, you can also boot your computer from a USB key containing Tails, a secure operating system that does not leave any trace of your Tails activity on the computer you are using; the Tor Browser is included in the Tails operating system.

If your computer is compromised, communications using GlobaLeaks may be compromised as well.
