Goodbye 2020, Hello 2021

2020 was certainly different and harder than we all anticipated. Despite the challenges that 2020 brought, the team at Simply Secure has done 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.

In 2021, you can expect to see some changes — including new team members and a new identity for Simply Secure, to match how we’ve grown since our inception! We’re hoping to expand on our work supporting consent, diversity and equity, human rights and infrastructure, as well as our growing portfolio of work around program design for supporting and funding trustworthy technology. We plan to continue working with individuals, projects, communities, and funders to  build and inform technology, resources and programs that protect people’s dignity, safety and privacy.

2020 Highlights

Looking forward to reconnecting with all of you in 2021.

In solidarity — Georgia & the team at Simply Secure

Why Hello, World!

We're here to make security easy and fun. Internet software links us to our friends, allows us to transact across oceans, and forms a digital space for culture and society. Because these technologies provide forums for sensitive discourse and expression, we are all concerned about their security and privacy – but don’t always know what to do about it. In fact, when security-enhancing functionality exists, it often seems to add an extra layer of complexity.

What We Do

You learned at our launch that we’re setting out to improve the experience users have with secure-communication tools. We told you that we want to work with the open source community, and that we’re committed to documenting our activities transparently. But what does this mean in practice – how will Ame, Trouble and I be spending our days? It’s much easier to show than to tell, so I expect you’ll get a better feel for our work as we describe it here over time.
