We are officially launching the Tor Project Membership Program, a new way for nonprofit and private sector organizations to financially support our work. 🎉
@torproject I appreciate a lot the work you do!
Still, don't you think that for-profit companies-members could be a negative influence? I am concerned about Avast in particular. They have proven that they have no regard for user privacy. Avast antivirus and AVG are collecting a lot of personal user data, including web history, yet they claim that they believe in privacy. "Look forward to working with Tor" seems suspicious, to say the least.
@torproject This seems a little suspicious. I don’t want the private sector to put a back door in Tor
