Use cases
Originally, Tella was designed to document human rights violations and political violence. However, over time, civil society actors have used Tella for a wider range of deployments:
  • By activists, organizers and human rights defenders to safely document events in their communities, produce reliable and verifiable evidence, and store data encrypted on their mobile devices
  • By media, professional reporters and citizen journalists to store sensitive media files encrypted as they travel, particularly as they cross borders and checkpoints
  • By civil society professionals and humanitarian workers to conduct interviews and collect data in poorly connected environments or in conflict areas
  • By electoral observation and monitoring organizations to monitor elections from inside and outside polling stations in real time and document electoral fraud or violence
  • By research institutions and international organizations to conduct research, interviews or surveys in challenging environments, particularly in conflict areas
