Reuters.com kondigt vandaag aan dat zij niet meer anonieme tips laat melden via Whatsapp, omdat ze het een te onveilig kanaal vindt, en vraagt om vertrouwelijke informatie voortaan via signal te delen.
“A note on WhatsApp
We eliminated WhatsApp from our tips system on Jan. 27, 2020, over concerns that the app isn’t secure enough. Reuters will no longer be fielding tips through WhatsApp. Instead, we recommend using Signal.
With about 2,500 journalists in nearly 200 cities, supported by a dedicated global investigative team, Reuters has the expertise and resources to chase news to the ends of the earth.
If you have significant information of public interest, Reuters has several ways tipsters can communicate confidentially with its journalists. No system is 100 percent secure. But the tools below can help protect your anonymity.
The more documents, data or other evidence you include to substantiate your tip, the more likely it is that we’ll be able to investigate it.
If you wish to submit a substantial number of documents, please contact us by the means below and we will explain the most secure way. Our Signal number is +1 (347) 880-5627
