Is the Blackphone the first NSA proof smartphone? Probably not

The upcoming Blackphone, powered by PrivatOS, could be the first NSA proof smartphone

We know that the NSA has a close and personal relationship with every human being that owns some form of a smart device, but how do you get away from the US spy agency, and it's total surveillance lockdown? The Blackphone, that's how.

The Blackphone will be revealed at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month, with the new smartphone "Powered by a security-oriented Android build named PrivatOS, is a carrier- and vendor-independent smartphone giving individuals and organizations the ability to make and receive secure phone calls, exchange secure texts, transfer and store files, and video chat without compromising user privacy on the device."

 

Blackphone will feature both the hardware and software that will be capable of phone calls that can be encrypted. But, I don't think this will get you out of the web that the NSA has built, unfortunately.
