Whether it’s your financial reports or your selfies, your data is encrypted by default on PRIV by BlackBerry. 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. 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 tempering.

With a slide out touch-enabled 4-row physical keyboard, contextual auto-correction, next-word prediction and a personalized learning engine that gets to know the way you type, you get more typing accuracy and screen space for viewing than on regular smartphones.
