MormonLeaks™ is a non profit media organization founded on the belief that increased transparency within the Mormon Church results in fewer untruths, less corruption, and less abuse within Mormonism. The organization provides sources and whistleblowers the technical ability to anonymously submit sensitive documents for use by professional and citizen journalists for starting and expanding news reporting, public commentary, and criticism related to Mormonism.
MormonLeaks™ was founded in 2016 by Ryan McKnight with assistance of Scott K. Fausett and other, anonymous volunteers. It has contributed to constructive commentary related to Mormonism is various news outlets around the world including The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Independent, NPR, ABC News, CBS News, Aljazeera, and many other major and independent outlets.
MormonLeaks™ uses SecureDrop for submissions. SecureDrop is an open-source submission system that allows us to securely accept documents from and communicate with anonymous sources. This system is also used by many news organizations including The Washington Post and The Guardian.
SecureDrop requires the use of the Tor network, a hidden network within the Internet that better protects your privacy and identity. Intimidated? Don’t be! Here’s how to use Tor to submit to MormonLeaks™ in 5 simple steps:
Documents submitted to MormonLeaks™ are encrypted in transit and at rest on our servers. No identifying information about the source, their computer, IP address, or browser is logged.
Access to our SecureDrop server can be found at http://efeip5ekoqi4upkz.onion/ (Tor required).
For those that don't wish to use Tor, we plan to implement a submission form that doesn't require Tor in the near future.
