With ever increasing concerns about privacy and security in our electronic lives, a new phone has been launched that promises to return control to you.

Blackphone is being sold as a unique platform that provides a smartphone with all the normal features, but built on an operating system that has been designed with security and privacy at its core.

Based on Android, Blackphone's PrivatOS provides a suite of applications that allow you to make secure voice calls, browse the web without being tracked or leaving a trail, anonymous search, VPN, secure cloud storage, secure wireless and much more.

All the bundled apps are privacy enabled, all communications are secure and a powerful remote wipe and anti-theft service enables full control in the event of loss of the hardware.

The hardware includes a >2 GHz quad-core SoC, 4.7" HD display, LTE, 802.11n WiFi, GPS and 8MP camera.

If you're concerned with privacy, or operate in a business where your data security is paramount then this may be one solution worth considering.

They really make you pay for the privacy with the bolt on price plan.

A list of their customers could be of interest to certain agencies - as in who are these people and why do they want to be invisible and what are they hiding.

Maybe I am just being paranoid....?

Just because you're paranoid, doesn't mean they're not out to get you.... Laughing

Hey, I'm not paranoid, but that doesn't mean to say that I want anybody other than the people I already know to be sniffing about my business. Facebook, Google, Microsoft, HSS, Local Councils, etc. all out to data mine you and then sell your information on to 3rd parties for a quick buck.

EDIT, but then I notice that the webpage is from China and do I trust the Chineese with producing a secure OS/phone platform? Guess I am Paranoid after all.

Well, don't worry. That does NOT mean that they are not out to get you. Smile
