Submit a tip
to Bloomberg News

Do you have a confidential news tip? Here are ways you can get in touch with our reporters.

A good story can start anywhere, including with anonymous tips, but when you provide a tip for journalists, it means sharing specific information — and not general speculation. At Bloomberg, we cover governments and power around the globe, as well as business and economics. The methods below can help protect your anonymity when you send us tips and documents.

Also, please do not use these methods to send press releases or story pitches.

Postal Mail

If you have documents or digital files on a thumb drive, you can send them without identifying yourself if you omit a return address and send the information from a public mailbox. Address it to “TIPS” or to a specific reporter on the outside of the envelope.

Bloomberg maintains a SecureDrop server — a secure communication platform designed to protect your anonymity. We set up our server in conjunction with the project’s maintainers, the Freedom of the Press Foundation to ensure it meets the highest industry standards. We control the SecureDrop server, which stores any information you send us in an encrypted format.

How to

For added security, you may wish to connect to Tor on a computer running the TAILS operating system.

Privacy information

Our policy is to scrub metadata from the files we receive through SecureDrop before publication. If you don’t want to send us metadata, please use the Metadata Anonymization Toolkit to scrub the file before you submit it.

However, no one can truly guarantee 100% security of any system. Like all software, SecureDrop may contain bugs. Ultimately, you use the SecureDrop service at your own risk.
