2020 was certainly different and harder than we all anticipated. Despite the challenges that 2020 brought, the team at Simply Secure did some amazing work, while also taking time to reflect and grow. We couldn’t have done this without support, collaboration, and solidarity from our community.
Our work focuses on building technology that enhances and protects human dignity by centering the needs of vulnerable populations. We work with practitioners to expand their skill set around human-centered design, while focusing on user safety, security and privacy. We share our tools and resources openly for the community to learn from and continue to adapt.More about what we do → Who we are →

Technologies like Awala bridge digital divides and provide opportunities for people to connect safely, even when traditional infrastructure and politics might block their access. As part of the OTF Usability Lab, we performed a heuristic review of Awala and a review of the developer experience. Here we highlight the Developer Experience (DX), where we provided recommendations to make it easier for third-party developers to adopt the technology and suitable use cases.
Thanks to support from the Open Tech Fund, Mozilla, Usable, the Prototype Fund, and others, we’ve worked with developers and information security professionals around the globe to build skills in user research, prototyping, and UX design. We also supply professional designers with peer support, security skills, and insights into the privacy implications of their work.
Through workshops, coaching sessions, consulting, and 1:1 support, Simply Secure empowers practitioners to build privacy-preserving technology.Contact us → Donate to us → See open positions →
