the aftermath of Snowden’s whistle-blowing inevitably lead to the question: are we still being watched? with the advancement in technology, it is hard not to leave some digital fingerprints here and there, but as far as basics in communication such as through the use of a cell phone, it could be a little more secured. personally, i have no issues with people snooping on my calls or texts, because i hardly make them (then do i have a phone? don’t ask… it’s a geek thing), but it is kind of cool to know that you can actually prevent people from sniffing your trails. we already seen two examples, the Geeksphone Blackphone and Boeing Black, and now, US carrier FreedomPop is offering you another option: FreedomPop Privacy Phone nicknamed the Snowden Phone.

unlike the previous two privacy phones, the FreedomPop is not designed from the ground up; it is actually based on a slightly backward Galaxy SII, which in mobile world, is considered way behind the current smartphone technology. but at just $189 off-contract, you can’t really complain, especially when it comes with 128-bit data encryption and all internet-related activities will be routed through a Virtual Private Network (VPN). not only does it keep your communication channel away from snoopers, it also keeps malware and viruses at bay, plus it is handy device that will also prevent online marketers from harvesting your web activity and use it on you.
