Why do I need to secure my phone?
Your cell phone holds some of your most sensitive personal information. Things like your passwords and account numbers, emails, text messages, photos, and videos. If your phone’s data ends up in the wrong hands, someone could steal your identity, buy stuff with your money, or hack into your email or social media accounts.
How does 4Freedom secure my phone?
4Freedom secures your phone several different ways. Some of the primary ways include:
Military Grade Encryption
With 4Freedom, all your communications, internet activity, and app usage are encrypted using multiple layers of robust, miliary-grade encryption algorithms that surpass the standards used by the NSA.
No Data Collection
Not only does 4Freedom provide you with tools to encrypt your activity and to prevent tech companies, network operators, social media platforms and others from collecting your data. When you sign up with 4Freedom, you do not provide any personal information – just an email address. And 4Freedom never tracks you or collects any of your data. This means we can’t sell it, hackers can’t steal it, and the government can’t demand it.
When you use 4Freedom, you are completely anonymous. Unlike other SIM cards, the 4Freedom Secure SIM does not share your phone number or any other personal information when it registers on a mobile network. So not even network operators will know your identity or phone number when you use their network.
Why get a 4Freedom Secure Phone?
The 4Freedom Mobile service will help protect you from data collection by network operators, social media platforms, government agencies, and others. However, one of the biggest data collectors on your phone is its operating system or OS.
According to the FCC, on average an iOS phone sends user data back to Apple 52 times a day. On average an Android phone sends user data back to Google 14 times an hour – that’s over 300 times a day!
To prevent Apple and Google tracking your every move through their operating systems, 4Freedom developed the 4Freedom Secure Phone.
The 4Freedom Secure Phone is built using a security hardened custom hardware design with a controlled manufacturing process to ensure no Zero Day hardware attacks are possible.
The 4Freedom OS is a de-Googled version of the Android operating system without any Google apps or Google services. Because the 4F OS is based on Android, you can still use almost all your favorite apps without having to worry about your data being shared with Google or Apple.
Can I still use my old phone number with 4Freedom?
Yes, you can port in your current phone number and continue to use it with your 4Freedom Mobile service. In the US the process normally takes ~2 weeks to complete, depending on your current mobile provider.
In addition, 4Freedom Mobile will provide you with a brand new, anonymous phone number that you can use from day 1 to make and receive calls and messages without anyone tracking your communications.
Once you will finish porting in your current number, you can continue to use both numbers on your phone at the same time.
Where does 4Freedom provide coverage?
4Freedom Mobile provides coverage nationwide in the US on the AT&T and T-Mobile networks. Anywhere that AT&T or T-Mobile have coverage, you should have coverage with 4Freedom Mobile.
Outside of the US, 4Freedom Mobile provides free international roaming on over 800 networks in over 200 countries, and access to high-speed data in over 80 countries, including most of Europe and Asia, as well as parts of the Middle East and Africa.
How Do I Know If My Data Is Secure?
There are a number of ways you can check if your personal information has been compromised:
Check your bank and credit card statements, online accounts, and email inboxes for any suspicious activity.
Request a credit report from one or more of the major credit bureaus.
Review your social media accounts for posts or comments you didn’t make.
If you think your identity has been stolen, contact the police and file a report.
Mobile security is an important issue that everyone should take seriously.
What differences will I experience when I switch to 4Freedom?
Greater Privacy: Tech companies, network operators, and the government agencies that depend on them will no longer be able to collect your personal information and track your every move through your mobile phone.
Better Coverage: 4Freedom partners with 2 or more network operators in every country. This means that you should experience better coverage as the 4Freedom Secure SIM will switch between the networks based on whichever one provides better coverage at your current location.
When you install your 4Freedom Secure SIM, your “Phone” and “Messages” apps will no longer work. That is because these apps use Voice and SMS technologies, both of which are not secure and are the primary methods through which network operators and the government monitor your communications.
When you use 4Freedom, you should make and receive all calls and messages using the 4Freedom Mobile app. That way your communications will be encrypted, and it will be impossible for network operators or anyone else to track your communications.
You can still call anyone, whether they are 4Freedom users or not. They will receive your calls and messages as regular voice calls and SMS messages. And when they reply, you will receive their calls and messages in the 4Freedom Mobile app.
Other messaging apps, such as WhatsApp, Signal, Discord, and others should still work without any differences. However, iMessage may not work due to Apple’s data collection policies.
Due to security, certain features will work a little differently when using 4Freedom Mobile service:
