Privacy and security-focused device maker Blackphone has today detailed a number of updates due to land for its PrivatOS early next year.
Central to the changes is the concept of ‘Spaces’ – secure, self-contained areas of the device for apps, data and accounts. This allows each user to create whichever Spaces they need, such as split ‘work’ and ‘personal’ spaces, or a kid-friendly area for when the little one wants to play with your phone. A ‘Silent Space’ is included by default and and includes the company’s ‘Silent Suite’ of encrypted communications apps.
Alongside the introduction of ‘Spaces’, Blackphone also announced that a new privacy-focused app store would roll out with PrivatOS 1.1 update in January next year.
