Online privacy is one of the most demanded features by users of the web. That’s why there is a huge outcry, and rightfully so, when apps use our data without telling us and many people are turning to anonymous web browsers. It’s only natural that this results in the appearance of apps like Phantom.me, a tool that puts a new spin on the concept of privacy by creating a safe and private space on your smartphone from which you can browse the web, chat, or view your photos without anyone knowing.
Phantom.me works in a peculiar way, since after installing it you won’t see any new icons on your home screen. The only way to access the app is by entering the master password that you chose when you added to app to your device. You have to enter the 6 to 14 character password in your dial menu, as if you were making a phone call, and then it will launch its interface.
The app lets you do various tasks all with complete privacy, which is a well needed characteristic on a smartphone. Everything that you do within the app is permanently encrypted and secured since it uses the sqlcipher AES-256 standard of data protection. Browsing, using your camera and gallery, and chats done within the app are all private, and although they are stored on the app creator’s servers, they assure users that they do not have any access to the encrypted data.
Phantom.me is a very interesting tool for those who want to maintain an invisible space on their Android device. Of course, you can only chat with other people who have the app installed on their smartphone and you have to pay a monthly fee to use the service. Fortunately the first month is free so you can see if it’s right for you.
