Blackphone will gain privacy-focused app store and Silent Spaces features in 2015


Blackphone and its Android-based PrivatOS have always been about security, and starting next year, that same focus will be applied to an application store.

Blackphone will roll an update to its phone in early 2015 that’ll include the Blackphone App Store, which the company touts as “the world’s first privacy-focused app store.” The shop will offer a selection of curated apps that will protect a user’s privacy, just like the rest of PrivatOS.

In addition to the app store, the Blackphone’s big update will include Silent Spaces. This new feature will offer separate spaces on the Blackphone for a user’s apps, data and accounts while keeping them self-contained and secure. This allows Blackphone users to keep their work and personal lives separate and secure.

Overall this sounds like a nice update for the Blackphone that’ll improve the device greatly. The app store will let users download apps to enhance their phone while keeping it secure, and Silent Spaces will enable them to use it for work, their personal lives and whatever else while keeping everything private, separate and safe.

      Highly doubt that’d be the case.
