On October 7, we launched our donation campaign by explaining why supporting Tails is more important than ever. On October 31, we summarized what we did in 2019 to make Tails easier to adopt by new users. Today we pass on to you our plans for 2020.

But first, we are pleased that the donation campaign has been pretty successful so far. We received around 50 000 € already, which is 69% more than last year. Still, these good results are due to some large donations and fewer people have been donating so far, 16% less than in 2018. We hope that after reading this post many of you will consider donating to Tails.

Less manual upgrades (January 2020)

Tails ships an automatic upgrade mechanism since 2013. But this mechanism only works for a limited amount of upgrades, after which a "manual" upgrade is needed.

These manual upgrades are a major pain point and we know that users often think their Tails is "broken" when automatic upgrades are not possible anymore.

In 2020, we will remove the need for most of these manual upgrades. And as automatic upgrades are also often too painful we will research ways to make them lighter and more robust.

New homepage and outreach material (April 2020)

Leveraging all the work that we have done in the past years to make Tails easier to install and use, in 2020, we will explain better what Tails is and why people should use it.

The text on our Home and About pages have not changed significantly since 2011. It is too verbose, too technical for most people, and not sufficiently engaging visually. Since then Tails has come a long way: the number of people using Tails has been multiplied by 16. Tails is no longer an experimental project for privacy experts but a well-established reference.

For the less technical part of our target audience, Tails is a technological object like nothing they have used before. Some of the core concepts of Tails are particularly innovative and hard to understand before using it:

  • Tails is a full operating system that is started from a USB stick.

  • Tails forgets everything by default.

To make sure that the new explanation of Tails makes sense to less tech-savvy users, we will use user-centered design techniques and work with professional graphic designers.

To reach critical communities of users and digital security trainers worldwide, we will also print outreach materials based on this new explanation, make it available in 4 languages, and send it to partner organizations worldwide.

If your organization works with journalists, activists, or human-defenders and is interested in receiving leaflets about Tails in 2020, please get in touch with us.

Secure Boot for better hardware support (July 2020)

In 2019, we worked on making it much easier for users to start Tails on Mac and as a consequence, their numbers more than doubled.

For years, Secure Boot has been among the main sources of issues reported to our help desk and prevented less tech-savvy users to adopt Tails.

Currently, many have to learn how to disable Secure Boot on their computer. This process is slightly different on every computer, is very complicated to learn on your own, and can lead to scary problems on Windows computers, for example BitLocker asking you for a recovery key.

Next year, we will add support for Secure Boot to Tails, making it easier to start on PC, for which 90% of people download Tails.

In 2020, we will keep the focus on improving Tails usability and outreaching to the people the most in need of digital security. If you also think that this is important, please take a moment to donate to Tails.

This release fixes many security vulnerabilities. You should upgrade as soon as possible.

Changes and upgrades

  • Use https://keys.openpgp.org/, also available on https://zkaan2xfbuxia2wpf7ofnkbz6r5zdbbvxbunvp5g2iebopbfc4iqmbad.onion/, as the default OpenPGP key server.

    • keys.openpgp.org is more trustworthy than other OpenPGP public key servers because it only references an OpenPGP public key after sending a confirmation email to the email addresses listed in the key.

    • keys.openpgp.org does not distribute third-party signatures, which are the signatures on a key that were made by some other key. Third-party signatures are the signatures used to create the OpenPGP Web of Trust.

    • keys.openpgp.org prevents OpenPGP certificate flooding attacks, which can make your OpenPGP keyring unusable and crash your computer.

    To learn more about keys.openpgp.org, read their About and FAQ pages.

  • Update Tor Browser to 9.0.2.

  • Update Thunderbird to from 60.9.0 to 68.2.2.

  • Replace the TorBirdy extension with custom settings and patches in Thunderbird that provide equivalent privacy.

  • Update Enigmail to 2.1.3, which has a simplified setup wizard that automatically creates an OpenPGP key for new email accounts.

  • Update Linux to 5.3.9. This should improve the support for newer hardware (graphics, Wi-Fi, etc.).

Fixed problems

  • Add back the Show Passphrase check box in Tails Greeter. (#17177)

  • Fix the display of the troubleshooting error when GDM fails to start. (#17200)

  • Add back the option to Open in Terminal when doing right-click (on Mac, click with two fingers) in a folder in the Files browser. (#17186)

  • Make the installation of additional software more reliable. (#17203)

Posted 2019-11-12

We are happy to announce the launch of our translation platform.

Tails is an out-of-the-box tool that aims at helping people to preserve their privacy and anonymity online. It comes with a website & documentation that is currently translated into 6 languages besides English: Farsi, French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish. To help more users at risk around the world to understand and use Tails, updating and translating the documentation into more languages is welcome and needed.

This is why we have put enormous effort into setting up an easier way to translate the documentation: welcome our new translation platform. After creating an account you can start suggesting translations right away! For more details on how to get started, make sure to read our documentation for translators.

We are specifically looking for translations to a set of languages that we consider valuable to our user base: Arabic, Farsi, French, German, Hindi, Indonesian, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Spanish, and Turkish.

Please refer to the section Getting help if you have further questions or experience technical problems.

Thank you for your contribution!

Posted 2019-11-06

On October 7, we started our yearly donation campaign. Today, we summarize what we achieved with your help in 2019.

If you liked our work in 2019, please take a minute to donate and make Tails thrive in 2020!

Easier adoption by new users

In 2019, we focused on fewer but critical features to make Tails easier to discover and adopt for first time users.

  • In January, we completely changed the Tails installation procedure. Tails is now downloaded as a USB image: an exact copy of the data as it is written to the USB stick.

    This made the installation experience better for all operating systems and particularly easier and much faster for less tech-savvy users of Windows and macOS.

  • Then, we improved our documentation to help first time users with their Tails installation:

    • We explained better how to troubleshoot failing Wi-Fi, an issue unfortunately quite common, especially on Mac, and documented which Wi-Fi USB adapters work well in Tails.

    • We created a boot menu animation to visualize how to start Tails on PC and clarified related troubleshooting instructions.

As a consequence, more people than ever are using Tails:

  • Tails is used nearly 25 000 times every day worldwide. That's 15% more than in August 2018.

  • The percentage of people using Tails on Mac more than doubled since January 2019.

To continue making Tails more accessible to users globally, we built a translation platform for our website. Since then, people started translations in Arabic, Catalan, Traditional and Simplified Chinese, Polish, Russian, Serbian, and Turkish.

We also improved a lot the usability of Tails Greeter for non-English users in Tails 4.0.

Maintenance work

2019 was also a year of heavy maintenance work, as always. Keeping alive a tool like Tails consists mostly of many tasks that are not very exciting: publishing new releases every 6 weeks, updating Tails and our infrastructure to new versions of Debian and other software that we use, fixing small issues as they are reported to us, and implementing the many small improvements that make Tails easier to use.

  • In October, we released Tails 4.0, which is the first version of Tails based on Debian 10 (Buster).

    Tails 4.0 was our most important release in years. Tails 4.0 adds KeePassXC, OnionShare 1.3.2, fixes Electrum, updates to Debian 10 and GNOME 3.30, starts faster and uses less memory.

  • We released 13 new versions of Tails to deliver improvements and security fixes as soon as possible.

  • We published more emergency releases than ever before: 5 emergency releases to fix 5 critical security vulnerabilities in Firefox and Tor Browser and always keep Tails as secure as possible.

  • We removed less popular software and localization packages, which you can now install yourself using the Additional Software feature. Optimizations like these made the USB image of Tails 4.0 47 MB smaller than Tails 3.6, which was the bigger release ever.

  • Tails depends on a wider ecosystem of Free Software and privacy tools. We continuously contribute improvements to other projects which are either included in Tails or used on our infrastructure. Some of these projects, that we call "upstream", are:

  • We had to temper several distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks targeting our infrastructure.

  • For 9 years, we have been relying on the hosting services provided by the fine people of boum.org. Thank you! As they were reducing their activities, we had to migrate our services. Our website is now self-hosted and our mailing-lists are taken care of by 2 experienced and trusted autonomous server projects: autistici.org and puscii.nl.

Community

Over the years, Tails has been able to gather a lively community which is growing, evolving, and deserves care.

  • We published a statement of our mission and values to help us clarify who we are, what we stand for, and what we want to do for our users.

  • We agreed on user personas, fictitious but concrete representations of the people using Tails. We use these personas to keep in mind who we are working for, what are their needs, and what Tails should do for them.

  • We attended 9 conferences and connected to Free Software and Internet freedom communities in 9 different countries, including FOSDEM (Belgium), Internet Freedom Festival (Spain), Tor Meeting (Sweden), OTF Summit (Taiwan), DebConf (Brazil), and MozFest (UK).

  • The wider Tails community organized 10 workshops to present Tails to new users in North and South America, Europe, and East and South-East Asia.

  • We answered 883 bug reports through our help desk and helped all these people to be safer online.

  • 2 new workers joined our help desk and sysadmin teams.

All of this is made possible by donations from people like you. And because these help us to plan our work, we particularly appreciate monthly and yearly donations, even the smallest ones.

If you liked our work in 2019, please take a minute to donate and make us thrive in 2020!

We are especially proud to present you Tails 4.0, the first version of Tails based on Debian 10 (Buster). It brings new versions of most of the software included in Tails and some important usability and performance improvements. Tails 4.0 introduces more changes than any other version since years.

This release also fixes many security issues. You should upgrade as soon as possible.

Changes and upgrades

Major changes to included software

  • Replace KeePassX with KeePassXC, which is more actively developed.

  • Update OnionShare from 0.9.2 to 1.3.2, which includes a lot of usability improvements.

  • Update Tor Browser to 9.0:

    • A gray border, called letter boxing, is now displayed around the content of web pages when you resize the window of Tor Browser.

      Letter boxing prevents websites from identifying your browser based on the size of its window. Letter boxing replaces the yellow warning that was displayed until now when maximizing Tor Browser.

    • The onion icon has been removed from the top bar.

      To switch to a new identity, choose  ▸ New Identity.

  • Update MAT from 0.6.1 to 0.8.0

    MAT has no graphical interface of its own anymore.

    To clean the metadata of a file:

    1. Open the Files browser and navigate to the file that you want to clean.

    2. Right-click (on Mac, click with two fingers) on the file.

    3. Choose Remove metadata.

  • Update Linux to 5.3.2. This should also improve the support for newer hardware (graphics, Wi-Fi, etc.).

  • Update Electrum from 3.2.3 to 3.3.8. Electrum works again in Tails.

  • Update Enigmail to 2.0.12 and gnupg to 2.2.12, which mitigate OpenPGP certificate flooding.

  • Upgrade most other software, for example:

    • Audacity from 2.1.2 to 2.2.2

    • GIMP from 2.8.18 to 2.10.8

    • Inkscape from 0.92.1 to 0.92.4

    • LibreOffice from 5.2.7 to 6.1.5

    • git from 2.11.0 to 2.20.1

    • Tor to 0.4.1.6

  • Remove Scribus.

    You can install Scribus again using the Additional Software feature.

Usability improvements to Tails Greeter

We improved various aspects of the usability of Tails Greeter, especially for non-English users:

  • To make it easier to select a language, we curated the list of proposed languages by removing the ones that had too little translations to be useful. We also clarified how Chinese is listed by having different entries for simplified and traditional Chinese.

  • We simplified the list of keyboard layouts.

  • We fixed the Formats setting, which was not being applied.

  • We prevented additional settings to be applied when clicking on Cancel or Back.

  • We fixed the opening of help pages in other languages than English, when available.

Performance and usability improvements

  • Tails 4.0 starts 20% faster.

  • Tails 4.0 requires about 250 MB less of RAM.

  • Tails 4.0 is 47 MB smaller to download than Tails 3.16, despite all these changes.

Releases

These are some of the changes that were introduced in Tails 3.16:

  • Removed pre-generated Pidgin accounts
  • Removed LibreOffice Math
  • Upgraded Tor Browser to 8.5.5

Code

  • We started to integrate Tor Browser 9.0 (#16356).

  • We started working on the upgrade to Thunderbird 68 (#16771).

  • We did lots of work to improve the reliability of our test suite.

  • We did some initial research and tests on using Portals to improve the UX of saving downloaded files from Tor Browser (#10422, #15678).

  • We did some initial research on redesigning, in a Wayland-compatible way, our current sudo-based privilege separation model (#12213 and subtasks).

  • We improved the UX of the Greeter and fixed a few of its most annoying bugs (#16095 and the tickets it blocks). This work will hopefully land in time for Tails 4.0 :)

Documentation and website

  • We rewrote completely the instructions to backup the persistent volume.

  • We documented how to do right-click on Mac. (#15718)

  • We proposed to use Trimage to compress better the images on our website. (#17099)

  • We agreed on having a "People" page. (#17046)

User experience

  • We published a job offer on illustrations on what is Tails and how it works.

  • We did some stats on how good people upgrade their Tails, with data from April 2019. (#17069#note-4)

    • 16.6% of boots (3800/day) had no direct automatic upgrade path to the latest version because they were more than 3 months old.

    • 3.8% of boots (860/day) were stuck before 3.6, which had broken all automatic upgrades. The impact of breaking all automatic upgrades in 3.6 was still huge even 1 year later.

How do we know this?

Posted 2019-10-08

The mission of Tails is to empower people worldwide by giving out an operating system that protects from surveillance and censorship.

We build liberating technology to put people in control of their digital lives, keeping in mind that the most vulnerable and oppressed people are also the most in need of privacy and security:

  • Journalists and whistleblowers use Tails to denounce the wrongdoings of governments and corporations.
  • Activists use Tails to avoid surveillance and organize their struggles for liberatory social change.
  • Human-rights defenders use Tails to avoid censorship and report human-rights violations.
  • Domestic violence survivors use Tails to escape surveillance in their homes.
  • Privacy-concerned citizens use Tails to avoid online tracking.

And we give out Tails for free because nobody should have to pay to be safe while using computers.

However, Tails needs funds to keep up the fight and we know that people who need Tails the most cannot always donate: because they would get in trouble for giving to an anti-surveillance tool or simply because they don't have the money.

Why supporting Tails is more important than ever

The 2019 World Press Freedom Index compiled by Reporters Without Borders (RSF) shows how hatred of journalists has degenerated into violence, contributing to an increase in fear. The number of countries regarded as safe, where journalists can work in complete security, continues to decline, while authoritarian regimes continue to tighten their grip on the media.

According to the 2019 Report by United Nations' Special Rapporteur David Kaye, surveillance of individuals – often journalists, activists, opposition figures, critics and others exercising their right to freedom of expression – thrives because of weak controls on exports and transfers of surveillance technology to repressive governments. This surveillance is known to lead to arbitrary detention, sometimes to torture and possibly to extrajudicial killings.

These technologies include targeted malware, online interception of network communications, and deep packet inspection; all technologies that Tails is one of the best tool to protect from while reducing the risk of dangerous mistakes.

A legal framework to regulate this surveillance industry, as recommended by David Kaye, might be useful for the future. But digital freedom tools like Tails are more needed than ever right now, in an act of empowerment and self-defense.

You are our best guarantee

We often hear complaints about software projects that are meant to fight surveillance, like Tor and Tails, getting funds from the US government. We share this concern and we will never be at ease as long as the well-being of our project depends on such funding.

This is why it's so important to be sustained by users like you: our independence depends on you.

We are extremely proud that our primary source of funding in the last years has been donations from passionate people like you. Let's keep it this way!

In 2017–2019, our money came from:

  • Passionate people like you
    (36%)
  • Foundations & NGOs
    (30%)

    like Mozilla or the Handshake Foundation
  • Entities related to the US government
    (25%)

    like the Open Technology Fund or the ISC Project
  • Private companies
    (9%)

    like DuckDuckGo or Lush

New anonymous ways to donate
