News Media Scan by DW

Full Text Sharing

The app is currently available free of charge in English for Android devices in the Google Play Store.

DW is dedicated to providing people around the world with access to free information and to help them work against censorship. As OONI’s first international media partner, DW is supporting the project with its comprehensive expertise and is consulting on the topics of censorship circumvention, freedom of expression and freedom of information.

The Open Observatory of Network Interference (OONI) is a free software project developed by the Tor Project with the goal of promoting the decentralization of efforts to detect Internet censorship across the world. DW and OONI have worked together for years on the topic of Internet censorship.
How does it work?
The app calls up the websites of news and information providers. Data about the technical reachability of the individual sites is transmitted to OONI, where they are then collected and evaluated. The users are then provided with the analyzed data about which specific sites are available or blocked.

The test lists are created based solely on the users' input. Neither OONI nor Deutsche Welle curate the lists. This ensures full transparency about the reachability of news and information sites from the country in question.
