Android based?

Quite the dubious claim unless they disallow installation of everything, crank down the browser and somehow have custom GSM baseband software.

I dont think that there is any OS/Software which cant be hacked. For example MS said that there Edge browser is the most secure browser available and guess what it was hacked in just 18 seconds

My favourite bit about such claims is not that each one claims to be "unhackable".
It is that each one claims to be "the first" unhackable.

I'm looking forward to seeing how they will wriggle away from their promise when the first evidence is presented...
"yes, but we did not mean that kind of hack"
"well, we did not think it could be done that way"

Maybe the others were hacked in 16 seconds? "Most secure" could always be relative.

Now, that is some freaking use case, where being anonymous is that important that you need the most secure phone available !

I hope their developers are better than their marketers
