BlackBerry PRIV secured phone


The PRIV comes with full-disk encryption, an always-on VPN for encrypted internet browsing, and secure profiles, to make sure your work and personal information don’t mix. BlackBerry succeeded in creating a secure device to run Android and developing the infrastructure to get security updates out quickly.

Google specifies the phones it considers in this category all need to have an update rate of 60–95 percent. The PRIV had an update rate somewhere in this range, though, Google didn’t give specifics.

Some of the other non-Nexus and Pixel Android devices that made the list include the Motorola Moto Z Droid, Oppo A33W, OnePlus 3, Samsung Galaxy S7, Asus Zenfone 3, BQ Aquarius M5, Vivo V3Max, LG V20, and the Sony Xperia X Compact.

The report highlighted BlackBerry’s commitment to timely updates. Specifically, it mentioned the quick response of the BlackBerry team to the Dirty COW zero-day exploit.
