SecureDrop needs your help to improve its user experience. What are we doing well? What are we doing poorly? What is confusing? How can we improve? Would you like to help facilitate user testing, or contribute to ongoing projects? Anyone is welcome to join our weekly online meeting. For more information and to see what we’ve been up to, check out our wiki or get in touch via email with @ei8fdb @ninavizz @belenbarrospena @saptaks @veronika.nad @inna @Fabrice and @mickael.
We have three main classes of users:
Sources - these users submit messages and documents to SecureDrop instances for journalists. They submit to a particular news organization.
Journalists - these users check SecureDrop instances, interact with sources, and write stories based on the documents and messages they receive.
Administrators - SecureDrop administrators run the SecureDrop instance of a particular organization. They onboard journalists, monitor the SecureDrop, and apply updates when necessary.
Sources and journalists are expected to be non-technical users. Administrators are expected to be technical.
