Metrics
=======
* Tails has been started more than BOOTS/MONTH times this month. This makes BOOTS/DAY boots a day on average.
* Tails has been started more than 936&#8239;560 times this month. This makes 31&#8239;219 boots a day on average.
[[How do we know this?|support/faq#boot_statistics]]
That's 8.7% more than in March and the biggest increase in usage since 2015.
It's most likely due to the COVID-19 quarantine and people staying at home
but it might also be a good sign from the support of Secure Boot and an
easier adoption by new users.
XXX: Ask <tails@boum.org> for this number.
