Mobile Phone Privacy Redefined

If you think of the 1900s, many things come into your mind but nothing that is intertwined with privacy issues will crop up. Technology at that time was at its infancy, and end-users had little to worry about their private or sensitive information. However, with the upsurge in technological advancements and the rampant diffusion of the Internet, privacy has become one of the biggest issues of the twenty-first century. There are numerous end-users who sit behind computer screens or hold hand-held devices that subject them to multiple vulnerabilities. Some find privacy vulnerabilities a way of making more money while others manipulate such information for their malicious gain.
Mobile phones have become the biggest menace when it comes to privacy issues. Sleek and sophisticated devices get stolen every other moment, and those who end up with them can access all sort of information that they carry. At times, the value and sensitivity of information that is lost or exposed after theft cases occur is more precious than the gadgets themselves. Users remain helpless, not knowing what to do to reduce the risk they face especially given that they can’t tell how bad the exposure could be. Still, other users crave for more privacy while using their mobile phones than any device, even a Blackberry, can ever give. From calls, to text messages, to email messages, some users desire for the ultimate privacy, but they have never gotten that, at least until recently.
The Blackphone, released recently by some Geeks from Spain could be the solution that twenty-first century end-users need. Users do not need to worry, unless otherwise, because if they own the phone, they can make encrypted calls, browse anonymously, and even text without compromising their privacy. It is the first retail-grade device to be designed solely for privacy. Its embedded technology makes it easy to secure digital assets regardless of in whose hands the smartphone is. Its automatic wipe-down technology in the event of a theft case is aimed at disabling the device permanently making it useless to the unauthorized owner and securing sensitive information. Well, there you have it; the Blackphone, securing your data.
