As political polarization continues to rise,  journalists face an increased risk of doxxing — making journalists and the organizations they serve an easy target for abuses ranging from identity theft, robocalls, and spam texts to social engineering and more.

To ensure that nonprofit news organizations can do the fearless reporting they are known for, INN partners with DeleteMe to offer our members immediate support protecting their reporters’ personal information online.

DeleteMe, a market leader in the removal of personally identifiable information, is teaming up with the Institute for Nonprofit News (INN) to help minimize the amount of personal information about journalists that can be discovered online. 

Thanks to support from Microsoft, INN is making 140 free DeleteMe licenses available to individual journalists from INN member newsrooms that demonstrate urgent need to protect their privacy online. (Applications for free DeleteMe licenses will be accepted on a rolling basis and priority will be given to INN member newsrooms with limited resources and/or acute need.)  In addition, INN has also secured an ongoing exclusive pricing for DeleteMe available to all INN members.

About: DeleteMe’s core mission is to simplify the process of managing personal data online, ensuring that individuals and businesses can minimize risks to their safety and giving rightful owners more control over their personal information on the internet. Since its inception in 2010, DeleteMe has successfully removed over 35 million individual pieces of data, establishing itself as a vanguard in the personal data removal space. 

Rate: INN has secured exclusive pricing for DeleteMe B2B privacy solutions.
