A selection to protect your data on your phone, Cryptophone, Solarin, Agent Case, Edward Snowden phone case

With electronic gadgets – phones, tablets, fitness bracelets, etc - permeating our private lives and information about us being constantly gathered and stored, it’s fair to ask: will those smartphones and mobile operators be able to provide better security of the data?

It’s no problem when the law enforcement agencies request that information but what if a hacker will get it? The latter recently resulted in celebrities’ naked photos on the internet.

A hacker having those data is most likely to sell it to professional blackmailers.

Just imagine: they will be aware of all your ideas and plans, when you are out and where your children are, where you are going to go and what you are going to buy.

Today this problem can be solved only by using protected smartphones as well as security enhancing gadgets for all other smartphones.

The following is the review of options to protect your information and conversations.We do not take programs into account because they do not change smartphone physical properties. For instance, iOS updating doesn’t provide a waterproof iPhone while a waterproof mobile case does.

This explains countless external sound amplifiers, camera modules and other gadgets that considerably increase smartphone functionality.

So, here we go.

1. Edward Snowden’s anti-spy phone cover

Recently Edward Snowden announced the developing of anti-spy iPhone cover.

The cover is attached to SIM tray and controls the work of smartphone receivers as well as GPS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth modules. On any suspicion of the smartphone to send irrelevant data, the cover immediately informs the owner about it. Using that cover is considered to be even more secured option than the flight mode of your smartphone.

Unlike Agent Case, it won’t disable suspicious activity but will inform about it. The cover is going to have a rather remarkable and seemingly unpractical design. However it makes sense to wait for the official release.

Price: unknown

Manufacturer’s site: not launched yet

2. Anti-wiretap cover

This cover is a bag with steel straps sewed in. It only provides passive security: you put your phone there and it blocks all incoming and outgoing calls on your phone. As soon as you need to make a call you get your phone out of the bag and you are not longer protected.

Price: from 60$

3. Cryptophone

One of the first phones offering decent security level. Based on Samsung Galaxy S3 and S5 platforms, with Android 5.0 operating system.

Price: from 3000$

Manufacturer’s site: Cryptophone

4. Solarin

A new player in the premium phone market with additional options for data security. The phone runs on Zimperium software protecting from hacker attacks and dealing with new hacking methods. It also has KoolSpan chip encrypting voice and text messages according to military standards. Operating system Android 5.0 is used.

Manufacturer's site: Sirinlabs

Price: from 14 000 $

5. Agent Case - iPhone cover for calls and data potection

Besides data security, this cover offers full protection against external factors due to 90% of carbon in it. Unlike Snowden’s cover, Agent Case has practical premium design. It’s no wonder: the company has an experience in developing special calls and data protecting covers since 2012. For the moment, only iOS (iPhone 5/5S/SE/6/6S) is supported.

Manufacturer's site: Agentcase

Price: 199 $

We hope our selection will help you to protecti your personal informaton!
