About Us

Tech Pilipinas

Tech Pilipinas is the Philippines’ digital lifestyle and technology magazine, helping millions of Filipinos keep up with the challenges of the fast-paced, ever-changing world of technology. We cover a myriad of topics such as computers, gadgets, software, mobile apps, social media, startups, telecommunications, and many more.

Established in 2017, Tech Pilipinas has grown from a humble hobby blog to become one of the most authoritative tech publications in the Philippines. Our 400+ high-quality, helpful and information-packed articles attract more than 5 million readers every year from all over the world.

Tech Pilipinas was founded by Luis Reginaldo Medilo, a writer, web designer and computer whiz from Bohol, Philippines. Luis has been interested in technology since he was a child, and as he grew up, he pursued his passion in computers and the internet. He realized that technology can be a vehicle in changing the world, so he started Tech Pilipinas to serve as a tool, albeit a small one, in making the world a better place.

Our Mission

To empower and enrich the lives of Filipinos with fresh news, articles and tutorials in the ever-changing world of technology.

Our Vision

To be the leading online authority about technology matters in the Philippines, and to inform and educate millions of Filipinos in the process.

Our Story

Tech Pilipinas was established in December 2017, after the founder Luis Reginaldo Medilo had an epiphany that he was going to be a tech blogger.

Luis didn’t know what to name his new brainchild, but fortunately the domain name techpilipinas.com was available for registration. Thus, Tech Pilipinas was born (“Pilipinas” is the Tagalog word for “Philippines”).

Wasting no time, Luis painstakingly put up the website on the WordPress platform (which is still being used today). He had no idea that he was on to something big.

Working day and night – sometimes until the wee hours of the morning – Luis slowly grew Tech Pilipinas from an obscure blog to a popular website with millions of readers and hundreds of thousands of followers.

Today, Tech Pilipinas is one of the most trusted and authoritative technology publications in the Philippines. To this day, Tech Pilipinas remains an independent outfit backed by more than two decades of computer and Internet experience of its founder.

Why Trust Tech Pilipinas?

There are dozens of technology websites and blogs in the Philippines. What makes Tech Pilipinas different and why you should trust us?

Expertly Written Articles

Tech Pilipinas’ office

When reading an article about computers, would you trust someone who has extensive experience working with computers for more than a decade, or someone who just learned to use the device a month ago? Certainly, the former!

All our authors have decades of experience in the field of technology, especially computers and the Internet. The founder himself, Luis, has more than 20 years of experience in and knowledge of the Internet, having his first encounter with cyberspace in 1999.

All our articles are written in-house and by hand. We don’t and will never outsource content to amateur writers or even students. All our content are written by humans and we will never use AI.

First-Hand and Experience-Based Content

We hate it when other websites talk about topics that they have never tried and tested personally! For example, they would talk about how to transfer money from Wise to GCash but they don’t even have a Wise account. We find it disingenuous and dishonest – yet many websites do it.

Here at Tech Pilipinas, we only write about a certain topic if we have first-hand experience with it. We personally use and test a product or website, and then write extensively about it, complete with step-by-step instructions and original screenshots.

Regularly Updated for Timeliness and Relevance

Technology changes at a rapid pace. What’s cutting edge today may be old news tomorrow.

That is why we go through all the effort to update our articles on a regular basis. We work hard to ensure that the information we share with our readers are current, up-to-date and relevant to them. If we have to rewrite an entire step-by-step tutorial and replace the screenshots, we will gladly do it – just to ensure that our readers are kept abreast of the latest updates.

Millions of Loyal Readers

Since 2017, more than 20 million readers from all over the world have visited Tech Pilipinas and learned something new. Based on our statistics, nearly 20% (1 out of 5) of our readers are repeat or return visitors – undeniable proof that our helpful content is loved and trusted by many.

More than 80% of our readers come from search engines such as Google and Bing.

Warren has more than 10 years of experience with computers, having worked as a tech support specialist in the past. In her free time, she loves to travel, watch Netflix movies and read novels.

Tech Pilipinas Logo

Our logo was designed by a talented graphic designer who I’ve known through the DigitalPoint Forum. He was able to produce this amazing concept in his first attempt, and we were instantly captivated by it. We like how the two letters “T” and “P” combine to form a symbol that represents our brand beautifully. The red and black colors meld with the website’s theme perfectly, symbolizing the strength, power and passion that we have for technology.
