Requests for permissions, bug reports, or other website related communications:

Private Communications Policy

Please avoid private communications whenever possible. Whonix ™ is a Freedom Software project. Free as in Price as well as in Freedom. (Why?) Therefore as many communications as possible should happen in public for transparency. Post in Whonix ™ forums whenever appropriate and possible.

Encrypted Communications Policy

Encrypted communications are accepted in the following categories: Plus Support, Investors, Premium Support, for reporting security issues, for private inquiries.

No Leaks Policy

Whonix ™ is not an investigative nor a malware forensics outfit. Leaks will be rejected. Unsolicited information will remain unread and will be securely deleted. No malware analysis and/or publication services are available. Feel free to consult third parties and knowledgeable malware researchers to discover the vulnerabilities, while notifying the publishers/maintainers of each package directly through responsible disclosure. Only responsibly notify us about security bugs in the instance of a Whonix ™ package being affected. [1]

Social Media

There are a few Whonix ™ Social Media Profiles, but they should not be relied upon for the latest Whonix ™ news. See Stay Tuned for reliable ways of following Whonix ™ news.

In addition, when appropriate Whonix ™ developers should be directly contacted by email and not via social media as these are likely to get unnoticed.

Some users may wish to follow or like the available Whonix ™ profiles (with an anonymous account). This applies if it is safe to talk about using the Whonix ™ platform and you want to share your experience with others. This is also a small way to contribute to the project.

Project Statements

The personal opinions of moderators or contributors to the Whonix ™ project do not represent the project as a whole.


  1. Whonix ™ is a very complex project with many aspects such as technology, legal, licenses, trademarks. Additional challenges from being a leak, investigative project or similar activities which would require very different infrastructure are therefore avoided.
