New Blackphone now available 2021

The next generation in smartphone security has arrived

Monday 25 October, 2021

The world is changing at an astonishing rate, especially when you consider how we have adopted the use of digital communications for almost every part of our lives, both business and personal. Our digital sphere has reached a point where anything we do online has a potential consequence, where each online activity we perform leaves a data footprint. A footprint that others can exploit.

Your data footprint is retained by the organisations that provide the technology you use for your digital communication, but why do they retain it? Simply put, money. It is the monetary value of your data that helps to define the market value of each of the tech giants.

But, as time has moved on, so has the desire of larger organisations, even state governments, to gain access to this treasure trove of information held on millions upon millions of people. In the latest understanding, it has been observed how this technology and data is being utilised to influence social movements and create a huge range of psychographics delivering communication on mass. 

At this level of intervention, everyone’s data, news feeds and social media is at risk. 

The Blackphone PRIVY 2.0 has launched 

It is for precisely these reasons that smartphone security and your privacy has always been at the forefront of handset development for the Blackphone. It has been this very ethos that has also been at the foundation of the next generation of smartphone security and privacy, the Blackphone PRIVY 2.0 has now been released to the global market. 

The Blackphone PRIVY 2.0 has been developed to address every aspect of smartphone security from the technology used to make the handset, through to the OS that runs it and the apps that can be used on it. Even how and where your data is securely held has been covered. 

So, what does the Blackphone PRIVY 2.0 have to establish itself as the next generation of smartphone security?

Military grade end-to-end encryption

Robust and powerful data encryption is a vital component for any security protocol used on the latest smartphones. With the next generation of Blackphone PRIVY 2.0, your communications are fully protected by a wide range of the very latest cryptographic protocols that deliver absolute data security. All your incoming and outgoing communications are secured by end-to-end encryption and only transmitted using an encrypted network. The data created is only stored on the device itself, ensuring it is fully secured and encrypted.

PRIVY Chat and PRIVY Vault

Messaging Apps and unencrypted calls pose a risk to your digital communications. In order to ensure total privacy and security for your communication, this factor needs to be resolved. The Blackphone PRIVY 2.0 is delivered with preloaded, state-of-the-art applications that provide secure communications and file storage. These are PRIVY Chat and PRIVY Vault. The applications protect your data whilst it is in transit, with military grade end-to-end encryption, and securely store the data-at-rest in encrypted databases.

This level of protection provides you with total peace of mind. 

PRIVY Chat and PRIVY Vault include:

  • Peer-to-peer chat
  • Secure group-chat
  • Peer-to-peer VoIP calls
  • PGP Chat
  • Fully encrypted file storage

Zero server trace storage 

Much has been written about the significant risks that are posed by tech giants storing your data and files on their own servers. They are often the target of hackers looking to exploit their infrastructure weaknesses to gain access to your information. 

To address this issue head on, the Blackphone PRIVY 2.0 does not store any sensitive information from your communications. Each message created in peer-to-peer chats does not reach the locations of our servers. The messages created in the Group chats only use our infrastructure to distribute the shared information. These messages are not stored for more than a week, after which they are deleted, leaving no trace. 

The VoIP calls only use our servers to establish a connection between the peers. These privacy-focused methods have been specially developed to assure your absolute privacy.

Secure OS

The threat posed by hackers and how they operate is forever changing and evolving. Their attack methods are now utilizing multiple end-points and backdoors, rather than simply employing a single attack vector. 

The standard Consumer-grade Operating Systems (OS), such as Android and iOS, pay a great deal of attention to developing the user experience and functionalities, all of which comes at the expense of comprehensive security. This approach to functionality over security means that their offerings are more easily exploited by hackers. Their technical expertise and know-how mean your data is accessible to any third party that desires it. 

The Blackphone PRIVY 2.0 is different. It is powered by Secure OS, which is a specially adapted operating system based on Android to focus heavily on the security factors. It deploys multiple defence layers to isolate, encrypt, and secure your data against any mobile threat.

The Secure OS deploys:

  • Zero attack surface
  • Military grade encryption
  • Triple password protection
  • Verified boot
  • Trusted updates

Silent Phone by Silent Circle

Silent Phone is an end-to-end encrypted application which allows users to make calls, send instant messages, and share files with other users that have the application on their device. This allows the Blackphone PRIVY 2.0 to communicate with any iOS or Android device, providing significantly wider reach and compatibility with any other secure phone.

Silent Phone connections:

  • Silent Phone to Silent Phone
  • Silent Phone to standard mobile or landline
  • Standard mobile or landline to Silent Phone

“We are very happy with the Blackphone PRIVY 2.0 on every level; production and finish, through to the security features.

We are currently developing additional features that will hopefully be available on an update this side of Christmas.
