Blackphone is the most privacy-focused smartphone to be launched in 2014
Today one of the main issues for mobile users is the security of their personal data. The more advanced the technologies become, the more dependent we become from the mobile devices for our daily life. Every day we share personal information via our smartphones and tablets which makes us more vulnerable to the possibility for someone to steal our data. The manufacturers and engineers are working hard on developing new reliable features that guarantee the best protection of our information. The latest models boast the capability for distant erasing of the data in case the device gets stolen. There are a lot of advanced features for better securing of the handsets, like fingerprint scanners and eye-scanners.
Soon users will have more options for highly protected devices against stealing of sensitive personal information. A new smartphone called Blackphone s officially announced by Silent Circle and Geeksphone. The companies describe the new handset as the world’s first smartphone that gives the users full control over their privacy and sharing of the information. The advantage of the Blackphone is the perfect combination of high-end hardware and the unique platform PrivatOS. This new operating system is bases on the Google’s Android platform which provides for users the features and the apps they like. The PrivatOS provides enriched security, such as encrypted messages, transfer of data, saving of files, video and pictures etc. The Blackphone is the device that will not compromise users’ information and data on their device. The project for the smartphone is the result of the work of many specialists, including Phil Zimmermann. The company does not reveal the exact specs of the device but it claims that the Blackphone scores very high in the benchmark tests „among the top performers from any manufacturer.” The extraordinary device is expected to be announced at MWC 2014. It will be launched soon after this. The price of the Blackphone remains a mystery. How do you like the concept for the device?
