Open Integrity Index

untitled.png

Open Integrity is a platform allowing the collaborative fact-checking of software security and privacy claims.

With a lack of accessible information about complex technology issues underlying privacy and security, users have few resources to be discerning about their communication choices especially vulnerable communities who need them most. OTF support focuses on launching a beta version of the site that includes assessments of 25 tools to provide reliable and evidence based answers to questions such as:

  • Which tools can be downloaded securely and verified to be authentic?

  • Which tools provide end-to-end encryption by default?

  • Which terms of service protect your private data?
