Portraits of Privacy - Campaign Styles
Extra steps are taken to authenticate and monitor access to your smartphone's features and personal data.
Rest assured that your experience is unimpeded and your privacy is under your control.
At BlackBerry, we are passionate about raising the bar for security and privacy. Extra steps are taken at both a hardware and software level to authenticate Android™ in order to help protect you from malware and any attempts to tamper with your OS.
We ensure a hardware root of trust with our silicon providers and manufacturing partners in order to ensure the integrity at the manufacturing process. BlackBerry verifies the integrity of the Android OS every time the device boots up. So even though you can't see it, know that extra precautions are taken at both the hardware and software level to protect PRIV™ from malicious tampering.
In this world of interconnected apps and networks, controlling what is shared and with whom it's shared can be a challenge. DTEK™ by BlackBerry® for Android™ lets you know when your privacy could be at risk so you can take action to improve it.
With BlackBerry Pop-Up Widgets, you can view any application widget by simply swiping up or down across the icon on your home screen, giving you fast access to the information you need, when you need it - and for your eyes only.
One of the biggest privacy challenges is user authentication, as current approaches are either too weak or too difficult to use. For example, fingerprint readers are convenient but can be defeated rather easily, and a hacked fingerprint means an aspect of your identity is forever compromised.
Strong passwords are difficult to remember and prone to loss and being stolen. Furthermore, passwords and PINs can be compromised by observing fingerprint smudge patterns on screens or by over-the-shoulder spying. As a result, many consumers simply use a weak PIN or no authentication at all.
