Blackberry PRIV Offers Enhanced Privacy for Mobile Banking
With the increased vulnerability of mobile apps, smartphone providers and app developers are under pressure to provide better security and privacy features for their users. BlackBerry may not dominate the industry like it once did, but its latest model of smartphone promises to offer the “most private mobile banking experience” on the market.
The BlackBerry PRIV is called the “SecureSmartphone” because of its enhanced privacy features, including multi-step identity verification for any process that accesses personal data stored on the phone. All data on the phone is encrypted by default, including financial reports, photos and mobile banking information.
In addition to the enhanced security options, all PRIV devices come equipped with DTEK, an innovative system that monitors all apps and activity on the phone to alert users when their personal information may be at risk. Since PRIV runs on the Android network, users can download any of their favorite mobile banking apps knowing they are protected through these security features.
BlackBerry may not be a top-name in smartphones any longer, but it could make a comeback in a time when data breaches are so prevalent. This may be why BlackBerry continues to be the preferred smartphone provider for the White House. As long as the company holds true to its protective services, it could stand a chance at regaining its strength in the mobile industry.
