About 10th Ooniversary

Ten years ago, the Open Observatory of Network Interference (OONI) was created with a vision: Build tools that enable anyone around the world to independently investigate internet censorship and publish open data that increases transparency of internet censorship worldwide.

Today, 10 years later, our OONI Probe app enables you to measure various forms of internet censorship, and we publish OONI Probe measurements from around the world as open data in real-time. This has enabled us to publish 75 reports in collaboration with our global network of partners, documenting internet censorship worldwide.

None of this would have been possible without our global community, who contribute censorship measurements every day, increasing transparency of internet censorship around the world.

In tribute to our community, we have set 5th December 2012 as OONI’s birthday, because that is the day when we published the first OONI measurement.

To celebrate 10 years of OONI censorship measurement, join us for the following 2 live-streamed events, where we’ll share highlights from the past 10 years, as well as stories from our community.
