Scientists city Innopolis has developed several innovative projects, which after a few years can change the lives of every Russian. One of these projects will be the Russian smartphones running Sailfish, which will protect users from being tracked.
Sailfish Mobile OS Rus called the first domestic mobile operating system, which is designed to oust foreign OS giants Google and Apple. In Russia about 75 million smartphones, of which 74% are on the operating system of Google and about 20% for Apple (iOS), stated the General Director of the company “Open mobile platform” (developed by Russian OS) Pavel eyges.
According to ages, iPhone and Android devices monitor users: collect personal data (contacts, calls, their time, photos, videos, etc.) and behavioral information (what applications are installed, how often the owner uses them, what resources people visit and in what sequence). This threatens the information security of not only the individual but also to companies and ultimately the state, he said.
That is why the idea of creating first domestic mobile OS. Despite the fact that it is made on the basis of an open platform Sailfish (developed originally from Nokia), it is argued that it is a fully domestic product. “The entire infrastructure of the OS is inside Russia. The data processed by these phones, in any case do not leave the perimeter of the system. In addition, all codes are inside of the Russian Federation” – leads TASS words of ages.
Device based on Sailfish Mobile OS Rus, according to developers, will be able to ensure the security of data transmission in the public sector, corporate sector and ordinary consumers who value privacy.
In the fall of 2016, the company sold the first batch of 1000 smartphones based on Russian OS, the device went on pre-order. Also this spring will start selling smartphones based on Sailfish Mobile OS Rus under the brand INOI – planned 500 000 of these devices.
