Meet FreedomPop's Encrypted "Snowden Phone"

In an era of digitally-stored lives, the need for safer communication has never been greater. In this direction, the U.S-based Internet service provider FreedomPop has launched a privacy phone, called the “Snowden Phone.” The “Snowden Phone” is actually a Samsung Galaxy S2 that FreedomPop has repacked into a call- and data-encrypting gadget.

 

The reconstructed Galaxy S2 packs a 4.3-inch screen, 1.2 GHz Samsung Exynos C210 processor, 16 GB of storage, and 8 megapixel camera. For the price of $189, unlimited voice and text messages come along with it. FreedomPop also generously offers 50 MB of data access per month for the first three months, and after that charges only $10 a monthly fee.

The 128-bit encryption used by banks and government agencies is part of this smartphone, promising private and secure voice calls and text messaging, while safe browsing on the Internet is provided by a built-in virtual private network. Users can also indulge in secret purchasing, and even those who pay with Bitcoins can remain nameless.

 

Everything about this smartphone is secret--even the phone can be paid for with Bitcoins--and users can ask for a new number whenever they want. If the phone gets lost or stolen, this private handset helps in locating the device and prevents uncertified use.

 

FreedomPop's Chief Operating Officer Steven Sesar states, "In light of recent violations in consumer's privacy across social networks and mobile devices, privacy is becoming increasingly important to many Americans and we all have a right to communicate anonymously."

The “Snowden Phone” is inspired by Edward Snowden, an American computer specialist, who was accused of leaking classified documents from the National Security Agency, when he was employed in the Central Intelligence Agency.
