Pledge to Secure Your Site

Publicly share your intention to protect your readers by securing your site

Planning to secure your site? We recognize that deploying HTTPS is a serious undertaking that can take a lot of time and attention. If you pledge to secure your site, we'll indicate your commitment to doing so on your site's score page so your users will know you're working on it.

If you're involved with one of the news organizations listed on Secure the News, you can use the form below to pledge to securing your site. In order to do so, you will need to:

  1. Publish a page on your website indicating your intent to secure your site.
  2. Fill out the form below, providing a link to your statement of intent and a contact email address so we can be in touch if we have any questions.

Once you've submitted the form, Freedom of the Press Foundation staff will review your submission. If it meets our criteria, we will approve it, which will update your site's score page to reflect your intention to secure your site.
