Publeaks Mobile - Information sharing tool for media on the go (Round 4)

Netherlands Project type: prototype Stichting Free Press Unlimited


With Publeaks Mobile, whistleblowers can ‘snap and share’ information with the media from their smartphone, increasing their involvement in any investigation following the tip-off.

The solution

More interaction between whistleblowers and journalists means tip-offs are more likely to be published. Tips are currently submitted through an online form and document upload. But ‘mobile whistleblowing’ will make submitting tip-offs easier and less error-prone, resulting in more tip-offs, more investigations and more publications. Whistleblowers will find Publeaks in their favourite chat app. A chatbot shares information and photos with participating journalists, who can then take over the chat and continue the conversation with the whistleblower.
