Use share.riseup.net to share files with your people


A friendly reminder about one of our favorite Riseup tools:

share.riseup.net. It’s useful for when you want to share something with your comrades, but your file is too big for an email attachment. Share.riseup.net temporarily shares those large files. Simply press the upload button, select your file, and then share the URL with anyone who you want to share the file with. The link will work for about a week.

To get more technical, share.riseup.net is an easy to use client-encrypted “pastebin” and “imagebin” that we host. When you share a file, it is encrypted before leaving your computer, so we don’t have a copy of what you are sharing. Please note: this kind of client-side encryption, where the program comes from the server can be bypassed if the provider adds a back door. We don’t have a back door, but it is difficult to verify this. For security where you are not putting your trust in anyone, you need to use an encryption application that is not web-based.

Accessibility Help


Riseup offers lots of services, and we know all of you have different bodies with different abilities and barriers in the daily use of these services.

Our core mission is to make liberated communications for all, and we want to make Riseup easier for all bodies to use. We need your help to do that. If you have difficulty using Riseup, please tell us about it by writing to accessibilty@riseup.net. From your feedback, we will know where we should focus our efforts to improve the accessibility of Riseup services.

Your Sent mail folder


We no longer are doing automatic deletion of messages that are older than 120 days from your “Sent” folder. Beware: now this folder can pile up with all of your manifestos and eat up your quota. Messages in “Trash” will still be deleted after 21 days, and messages in “Spam” will still be deleted after 7 days.

Thanks


Thanks to all the thousands of people who gave us money over the last couple of months to keep us going. This project to bring secure communication tools to the unruly masses is our heart and soul, and you make it possible. Any more money any of you can donate would be amazing.

Thanks.
