Tails is free because nobody should have to pay to be safe while using computers.

Tails is used more than 25 000 times every day:

But, not everyone using Tails can donate. When you donate, you are offering to many others who need it, the very precious tool that is Tails.

We know that secure tools need to be free software to be trustworthy. That's why we are giving out Tails for free but ask for your help to protect and sustain it.

Donations from individuals like you are our most valuable source of funding as they make Tails more independent from government and corporate funding. We are a very small non-profit and our yearly budget is ridiculously small compared to the value of Tails.

Please consider making a donation to protect and sustain Tails.


Monthly and yearly donations require a [[!img paypal-inline.png link="no" class="paypal-inline" alt="PayPal"]] account.

[[!toggle id="other-cryptos" text="What about other cryptocurrencies?"]] [[!toggleable id="other-cryptos" text="""

Supporting a new cryptocurrency implies more work for us (learning how it works, installing the software in a secure place, monitoring its value and trading it, etc.). To make a good use of our time, we focus on the ones that are the easiest for us to accept and the most popular.

Until now, cryptocurrencies other than Bitcoin represent less than 5% of our donations in cryptocurrencies. We want to see cryptcurrencies other than Bitcoin gain popularity before spending time on them.
