True Testing

True Testing was founded on the belief that product reviews must be independent, free of conflicts of interest, scientifically grounded and accessible for free. Sadly most online reviews today don't meet those standards making it impossible to know which online products to buy.

To help fix this issue we created a non-profit organization Cyber Security Technologies Foundation whose main mission is to help you know which online products are worth buying by providing you conflict-free, accurate online products reviews that you can trust.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

True Testing was founded on the belief that product reviews must be independent, free of conflicts of interest, scientifically grounded and accessible for free. Sadly most online reviews today don't meet those standards making it impossible to know which online products to buy.

To help fix this issue we created a non-profit organization Cyber Security Technologies Foundation whose main mission is to help you know which online products are worth buying by providing you conflict-free, accurate online products reviews that you can trust.

True Testing, the site you are on, is the product of our efforts and the home of our tests.

Being a registered non-profit organization and having our tests financed by donations and affiliated links commissions ensure that we are free of conflict of interests. The products we test are exclusively bought online like any regular users do. We never accepted any review samples or money to test specific products.

Transparency and objectivity is essential when it comes to providing you actionable reviews. Which is why, True Testing will either recommend a product or not. Our recommendation implies, as visible in the product results card, that the product passed a set of rigorous tests that ensure it will work for its intended use-cases.

Be conflict of interest free
To be trusted, research and reviews must be free of conflict of interest to ensure there is no hidden agenda at play. This is why CySecTech will always refuse money to test specific products or product samples. Instead we rely on donations to test what we believe is of the greatest utility to the world and focus on providing a rigorous evaluation – this way we don't have to worry about the outcome displeasing manufacturers or marketing agencies.

Be transparent
Accountability is vital to building trust which is why all our tests, methodologies, and code are publicly available. This makes it crystal clear how we reached our recommendation and how we spend our resources. This transparency and accountability empower the public and our donators to audit what we do so they can build trust in our recommendations and that we put their donations to good use.

Free access to information
We believe that the best way to build a trustworthy cyberworld is to provide accurate, free of conflict of interest information that is available without paywall, signup or any restrictions. Our hope is that availablility of free and reliable information will empower every individual to make the best decisions possible for themselves, effectively removing the insider knowledge that currently allows privileged individuals to make better decisions than others. To help reach this goal all the data created by CySecTech including our test results, methodology and code is freely available via TrueTesting and our Github page without the need to register or login. Additionally to encourage free information flow and dissemination, we are making our data available under the CC BY-NC 4.0 license and freely available for research and education purposes as outlined in our terms of use.
