Tired of pesky calls on your cell phone?
Here is a solution. A group of companies has partnered up to offer something different. The device is called Blackphone. It is an Android smartphone that prioritizes privacy and security, shielding your data from carriers, advertisers and malicious third parties who could trade your details for the purposes of profit or oppression. Blackphone is available at a price of $649.
Blackphone comes with utilities that give the user better control over what third-party software does on their phone.
The device is very simple to work: You start out with a nicely designed and well-specked Android-based phone, and then package it with some tried-and-tested apps and services that will work out of the box. The first layer is a customized skin called “PrivatOS” which gives the phone a different look and feel, but also works as a platform that encrypts locally stored information. Next, you add in services like Silent Circle and Disconnect. me to enable anonymous phone calls, texts and browsing too. It is also extremely easy to set the degree of access each app has to cellular networks, WiFi and locally stored info.
