Privacy-focused Blackphone on show at MWC

GeeksPhone shows off their privacy-focused BlackPhone at MWC.

The GeeksPhone Blackphone is designed specifically for those who would prefer to keep their data to themselves.

The Blackphone keeps your user data secure and anonymous via several methods. Unlike other phones it doesn't track your browser and search history which would allow others to mine your data. It also prevents location tracking via wifi hotspots. This is all made possible via a heavily-modified version of Android called PrivatOS.

In addition to its built-in privacy features, the Blackphone also comes with privacy service subscriptions for you as well as your friends and family – ensuring your communication remains off-the-grid.

The phone has a 2GHz quad-core processor, 2GB RAM, it's 4G-enabled and has a 4.7-inch HD screen.

The Blackphone is now available for preorder on the Blackphone website. With GST added you'll be paying US$691.90 to get one shipped to you.
