Público (Portuguese for Public) is a Portuguese daily national newspaper. It began publication on 5 March 1990. The newspaper is known as a publication of the French school, with extensive texts and few illustrations. It was founded by Sonae and is nowadays owned by the Sonae.com group.

Its first editor-in-chief was Vicente Jorge Silva, formerly sub-editor-in-chief at Expresso. José Manuel Fernandes was editor-in-chief for the last 11 years. The new editor-in-chief is Bárbara Reis.

Público was the second Portuguese mainstream newspaper to have an online edition. Their online edition was free and included almost all the articles from the print edition, except for the pictures. In 2005 it changed from a fully free-access to a subscription model. In 2006, the HTML version of the current day's edition became free again, while the other contents, such as the PDF version (only for subscribers), enhanced HTML version and access to past editions, are still subject to registration and subscription.
