Almost every smartphone today comes loaded with hardware- and software-based security features such as encryption, facial recognition, iris scanners, among others.



The world has changed in terms of technology, that to the evolution in the smartphone world. The world is no longer a global village, but a single room where everything is within reach, including washrooms. The train left the station and there is no turning back.

As the world continues to change in terms of technology, concerns about the mining of data and privacy continue to arise. In many cases, smartphone users have accused manufacturers of having features that go against the right to privacy for the users.

Smartphone makers have over the past few years competing on coming up with a phone that is more secure in protecting data and the privacy of the user than the other. The most high-end smartphones of today are more encrypted and hard to hack.

Almost every smartphone today comes loaded with hardware- and software-based security features such as encryption, facial recognition, iris scanners, among others, all tailored towards making sure that the user feels safe and protected.

Here are the top 10 most secure smartphones in the world:

Katim Phone

This has been vetted as the world’s most secure smartphone that runs a heavily customized version of Android. At every boot instance, the device checks the complete software stack to detect modifications. DarkMatter unveiled the phone concept last year but has now brought it to market.

One security feature built by the Middle East-based firm is called “shield mode,” which disconnects power from the microphone and camera on the device so that nobody can spy on your conversations.

“If you are to enter a secure meeting or a very confidential meeting as a business, you are striking a secret deal, or as a government having a secret meeting in that regard… you always tend to find people leaving their phone outside the meeting,” Faisal Al Bannai, CEO of DarkMatter, told CNBC in an interview Tuesday.

Blackphone 2

This phone was launched by Silent Circle and runs SilentOS, a customized version of Android, and uses a proprietary GoSilent firewall. Its Security Center gives you complete control over app permissions and data sharing.

Blackphone 2’s Silent OS, which is essentially a modified Android version, gives you more control of your privacy than you can have any luck with on any other smartphone.

Sirin Solarin

The device comes with a Security Shield mode which creates an isolated zone for encrypted calls and messages. For emails, it has got ProtonMail.

The smartphone runs Android 5.1 Lollipop that’s been heavily customized for security. For privacy, Solarin will pack a mobile threat protection app from security expert Zimperium.

The company partnered with KoolSpan to integrate chip-to-chip 256-bit AES encryption.

The handset sports a Security Switch on the back that when flipped activates a shielded mode where users can make calls and send messages that are fully encrypted.

The phone is made of Liquidmorphium, an alloy of copper, aluminum, nickel, silver, and zirconium. Its makers claim the Turing Phone is unbreakable. It promises ‘total protection’ from hackers, malware, and data theft.

The phone is a Sailfish OS and Android OS smartphone by Turing Robotic Industries (TRI) which provides end-to-end encryption for secure communications.

The device uses decentralized authentication to encrypt any communications and comes with its master public key and unique private key pre-installed with the phone.

When a device is communicating with another Turing Phone, the two devices can directly verify their identity, side-stepping the need to route it via a Key Distribution Center.

At first, the device was to run Android 5.0 which was later abandoned in favor of Sailfish OS, an operating system more resistant to attacks and threats, modified and adjusted according to the specifications and the user interface of Turing Phone
