“Up to now people had to live with the fact that their smartphones track every step they take. Now, for the first time, the Zenith gives us the chance of not being tracked- even when our phone is switched on,” says Arne Möhle, developer of Tutanota.

The UnaPhone Zenith, the world’s first truly secure and private smartphone dedicated to protecting user’s privacy and data, is live on Indiegogo and raising funds to bring the project to life.
After more than a year of development and testing, the Una developers are going public with their new smartphone. What sets the Zenith apart from other devices is that the smartphone is that it is the first genuinely secure smartphone suitable for all users. The phone is powered by a fully-secured Android 6.0 operating system developed by Una and called UnaOS. The UnaPhone Zenith is the first truly secure and private smartphone that makes no compromises. It doesn’t use any Google services, shady apps, or strange permissions. With the UnaPhone Zenith, users are never tracked and their data is never sold. For the first time, a user’s phone will not be a personal surveillance device, but simply a personal phone, and all personal data will remain where it belongs- with the user.
Tutanota, one of the best and most secure email providers strongly supports the Una developers as one of their main partners. “Up to now people had to live with the fact that their smartphones track every step they take. Now, for the first time, the Zenith gives us the chance of not being tracked- even when our phone is switched on,” says Arne Möhle, developer of the secure email service Tutanota, “We are very happy that we can fight for privacy together with the Una devs. We believe that everybody has the right to keep their personal data private.”
The project is a result of partnerships with Elephone, one of the most influential smartphone manufacturer in China, Tutanota, one of the best and most secure email providers, and Callprotector, a security communication suite. The UnaPhone Zenith is a carrier and vendor independent smartphone, with a suite of secured applications that allow uses to make and receive phone calls, send text messages, have chat conversations, transfer files and send emails without comprising their privacy or security, since they are all protected and fully encrypted.
The phone does not only secure communications, but the OS has been modified in a way that excludes any and all data leakage, patched all known vulnerabilities, full storage encryption by default, and a truly private setup, so the phone cannot be identified by the carrier. The device is also secured the way to block any installation or system modification.
The UnaPhone Zenith was founded in every aspect to be focused on protecting user’s privacy and data. The company went through the code of dozens of open source third party apps and selected the best, most robust and most secure amongst them. Then, by modifying them, UnaOS made sure that all complied with the highest standard of security and privacy. Finally, the company used them to replace some invasive system apps for functions such as default email, messaging, calling, offline/online maps, text editors, video player, music player, enhanced DSP, offline dictionaries, and more. Users will have all the functionalities they need, but without the security leaks and the invasion of privacy that they have been obliged to live with until now.

Una is a new concept that takes security and privacy to a new level. UnaOS is a team of Android developers that came together to provide genuine security and privacy solutions for mobile activity. Invasion of privacy, data mining and exploitation of users habits and behaviors have become a part of our everyday life and that's the price to pay for being overly exposed to the companies and organizations behind the apps and devices people use. The right to privacy is a fundamental human right, and all users should have the ability to secure their data and choose they interact with and who they allow to use their personal information, provided that they want to allow it at all.
