Katim Smartphone is Designed to Block Spy Agencies From Listening In

The Infinite Brief
Cybersecurity firm DarkMatter has launched its first smartphone, designed to stop spy agencies listening to you.

An Android device called Katim, it was made available commercially Monday at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, and has a 5.2-inch display, as well as a high level of encryption.

One security feature built by the Middle East-based firm is called “shield mode,” which disconnects power from the microphone and camera on the device so that nobody can spy on your conversations.

Shield mode is activated by flicking a button on the side of the device; the CEO said this makes it more secure.
