Project Shield is an initiative launched by Google Ideas to use Google's own Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack mitigation technology to protect free expression online. The service allows other websites to serve their content through Google’s infrastructure without having to move their hosting location.

Project Shield is currently invite-only, and seeking additional 'trusted testers'. Organizations with sites serving media, elections and human rights related content are invited to apply using the form below. Please find more information about the initiative here.

If you're interested in being part of this initiative, please complete the following form. An email will be sent to confirm your submission. Invitations will be extended on a rolling basis.

Thank you for your interest in Project Shield! Invitations will be extended on a rolling basis, and you will be notified via email if your site is selected to become a 'trusted tester'.
