Every day, Apple rejects hundreds of apps from inclusion in their App Stores around the world on the directives of authoritarian governments. Oftentimes, these app removals run contrary to local laws protecting freedom of speech. Apple often declares that they believe that “privacy is a fundamental human right” but the company actively denies freedom of access to information for millions of their customers around the world.

About Us

We are an anonymous organization based in China. We launched our first project in 2011 in an effort to help bring transparency to online censorship in China. Now we focus on helping Chinese to freely access information. Apart from being widely discussed in most major mass media, GreatFire has also been the subject of a number of academic papers from various research institutions. FreeWeibo.com won the 2013 Deutsche Welle “Best Of Online Activism” award in the “Best Innovation” category. In 2016, GreatFire won a Digital Activism fellowship from Index on Censorship.
