Please note that the IWMF is temporarily putting Reporta into maintenance mode. We are making important improvements to it, and look forward to launching a new and improved version of the app in 2017. Until those improvements are completed, the application will be offline and won’t be available on Google Play or the iTunes App store.
 In the meantime, we encourage you to visit to learn about other opportunities and support for female journalists through the International Women’s Media Foundation.

Journalists around the world face increasingly hostile environments. Reporta is an essential tool for journalists to facilitate the implementation of security protocols with three key functions:

  • An automated and flexible Check-in system designed for dangerous environments.

  • Customized Alerts - including photos, audio or video- when a journalist's safety or that of a colleague's may be at risk.

  • An SOS button for distress messages to contacts before the app shuts down to prevent unwanted access.

Reporta was made possible by a grant from the Howard G. Buffett Foundation
