Privacy Matters. Live Secure.

Whether it’s your financial reports or your selfies, your data is encrypted on the PRIV. BlackBerry lives and breathes security and has taken extra steps to help protect you from malware, data breaches and any attempts to hack and tamper with your OS.

Security can seem complicated, but we want to make it simple for you. DTEK by BlackBerry® for Android will automatically monitor your OS and apps and let you know when your privacy could be at risk and how you can take action to improve it. With just a quick glimpse you can see the overall security rating for your device – excellent, fair or poor – and what you can do to improve it. DTEK also tracks your applications and notifies you when someone is:

  • Taking pictures or videos without your knowledge
  • Turning your microphone on
  • Sending a text message
  • Accessing your contacts, location or financial information
PRIV Side View

PRIV is packed with lots of other security features like Password Keeper to store secret passwords and notes, Picture Password to make it virtually impossible for someone to break into your phone, and encrypted messaging with BBM. Take control and be confident knowing your personal data is being kept private.

Best of

PRIV gives you the freedom to choose between a virtual keyboard or a physical keyboard for speed and accuracy. Snap the slider open to gain back screen space and reveal a full physical keyboard. Move your thumb across the touch sensitive keys for scrolling, flicking predictive text onto the screen, and fine cursor control as if it were a track pad. And, easily program the buttons to launch customizable shortcuts.

It sports an incredible pixel density that’s 4x the amount of pixels of a standard HDTV.
