Traveling With A Smartphone That Is Secure


Traveling With A Smartphone

There are plenty of reasons to take a smartphone along on your trip, and we cannot deny that a smartphone can make everything easier in different scenarios. It helps us to plan, to stay in contact with our loved ones, to find the best places to eat, to drink, to visit, and a lot more.

We are aware that a smartphone should have determined features to help us in every situation we can experience on a trip, it is because of that we are bringing to you some basic things you should check on while choosing your smartphone.


First, there is the charging capacity, this is basic, there will be times when you will be using the smartphone all day, and during all those long travel hours away from charging points you will need a phone with good battery capacity. Just imagine if you are alone and lost, you’ll need to make a call or send a message, on emergencies like that luckily only your cellphone can help you.

Storage, this point here depends a lot of the brand you are buying. It is said that the ideal storage space should be at least 32 GB. As you can imagine while we are on a trip there is not a thing we do not want to capture for our memories, and that converts on hundreds of pictures taken with our smartphone, which once again makes it almost mandatory having a cellphone with a great capacity of space storage.

Then, as you should know another important thing to have in mind is looking for a mobile that is capable of capturing all those amazing moments we live during our trips, and here is when we should check on what kind of camera it has.


Camera quality is the key. A smartphone can have tons of storage capacity but without a high quality camera, we have nothing. A smartphone needs to take good photos and videos, at least outdoors and preferably in challenging conditions. It should also have a great color saturation and white balance in almost any conditions.

The list can go on and on, and we can continue mentioning a bunch of qualities that the smartphone you travel with, should have. However, we cannot finish this article without mentioning something even more important than the facts, we talked about before, and that is SECURITY.

When you are away from home you take along with you all your basic information like files and photos stored on your phone, for example there are times all this data is uploaded to the cloud, without you even noticing it or giving any permission to it. That is why it is excessively important having your data saved from getting into wrong hands.

Don’t forget that internet experts have given some advice about connecting to a free Wifi network is dangerous and exposes all of our data to possible hackers.


Unfortunately, at the moment the only “security feature” we can find on the smartphones that the market offers to us, is not enough.  As we have seen, most of them have based their system protection on softwares and the fingerprint scanner in some cases. Even though some of them are good we don’t realize that when they try to encrypt our data and other important information, they have access to them as well, which means you’re already being exposed. In addition, let’s not forget that the majority of times they all end up being hacked.

In the end, you would think having all security features in one smartphone, is almost impossible, right? Apparently not and there does exist a solution for this!

PRIVAT smartphone

PRIVAT smartphone is not only a high-quality smartphone that offers all the features mentioned before like: a high camera quality for photos and videos; but it also guarantees 100% privacy protection of the user’s photos and videos. In addition, PRIVAT has an Anti- espionage system with physical disconnection of the microphone and GPS as well.


Without mentioning, it is the only smartphone in the world that works with a security system based on hardware, NOT software. PRIVAT is soon to be released in the international INDIEGOGO platform and it promises to be a HIGH END SECURITY SMARTPHONE.


PRIVAT has two independent mainboards, one for the smartphone and the other for the independent camera. Furthermore, each one has its own operating system with an internal memory and an expandable SD slot.

You can also physically disconnect through a switch the GPS module, cameras and microphones.

The use of PRIVAT could be useful for the famous artist, business men, politicians or simply everyone who needs to keep high control of his private data through an unbreakable system.



The first switch allows you to change of “mode”, it has 3 positions.
– The first position is a normal mode: the smartphone is working just as any other smartphone.
– The second position shutdown any microphone and camera of the smartphone
– The third position is the most innovative, it trigger an independent camera in the smartphone so you can shoot and store photos and videos away from Android. It is a physically independent piece of hardware separated from the smartphone mother board.

The second switch allows you to disconnect the GPS without the option to activate it back from android so you are free of precise geolocation tracking.

Nowadays “gadget theft” is a very common issue, and even though we cannot avoid facing those problems, we can prevent them. So whether you are planning to start your travel adventure near your city or outside the country, you should always be conscious about all the important and valuable information you are carrying on your cellphone.


In conclusion, it is definitely worth travelling with your smartphone. Not only because it is considered a necessity for most people who love traveling, but also because you deserve being able to capture all those precious moments and experiences you live while you are traveling. Share those memories with your friends and family on the social networks you want, feeling SAFE and keeping your files SECURE, while you are doing it.
