The security gave by gadgets like the GranitePhone include some major disadvantages. “Obviously, we have a few confinements,” concedes d’Avila. “Our telephone is not going to have the capacity to download outsider applications on the grounds that that is the main way we can secure the end point for clients.”
The telephone keeps running on custom-assembled Granite OS firmware. It depends on Android, yet it can’t get to the Google Play Store to download applications, which its opponent Blackphone can. On the other hand, Sikur arrangements to work with outsider designers to add applications to the following gadget, which is normal one year from now.
For the present, manufactured in applications incorporate essential telephone, contacts, SMS and informing applications. Calls and messages between two GranitePhones are scrambled.
Other security components incorporate remote wiping, which can be utilized ought to the telephone fall into the wrong hands. Also, once you’ve purchased the telephone, Sikur can upgrade it over the air to fix new vulnerabilities.
