Ten years of empowering activists AND everyday people through free mobile software
"From bringing OTR, Tor, GnuGP, FFMPEG and SQLCipher to Android, to developing and supporting apps like Orbot, Tor Browser for Android, Onion Browser, F-Droid, ChatSecure, Haven and more, we at Guardian Project have been pretty busy for the last decade. Through ups and downs, iterations and improvements, we have a lot of interesting stories to tell about where we've been, and where we are headed." From LibrePlanet 2021.

"Nathan Freitas is the founder and director of Guardian Project, an award-winning free software mobile security collaborative with millions of users and beneficiaries worldwide. Their most well known app is Orbot, which brings the Tor anonymity and circumvention network to Android devices, and has been installed more than 20 million times. In late 2017, he co-designed an app called Haven with Edward Snowden; Haven works as a personal security system that puts the power of surveillance back into the hands of the most vulnerable and under threat. His work on off-grid, decentralized, secure mobile communication networks, dubbed Wind, was originally imagined and workshopped while Nathan was a fellow at the Berkman-Klein Center in 2015. In 2018, Wind was selected as a finalist in the Mozilla-National Science Foundation "Wireless Innovation for a Networked Society (WINS)" Challenge."
