Tails is free because nobody should have to pay to be safe while using computers.

But we need your support to stay alive!

Tails is an irreplaceable security tool as it allows anyone to use computers safely. But we know that secure tools need to be free software to be reliable and relevant in all situations. That's why we are giving out Tails for free.

If everybody using Tails today donated, our fundraising would be done for the whole year. But not everybody can donate. And that's fine. We just need some of you to give to keep on providing such a secure platform for everybody.

Donations from individuals, like you, are our most valuable funding as they make Tails more independent from government and corporate funding.

This year, please consider making a donation to protect and sustain Tails.
