The Snowden phone is an ultra-secure smartphone that supposedly has digital privacy anyone would be happy to have. If you prefer people to ask before looking through your phone or if you would rather not have anyone look through your phone ever, then the Snowden phone is perfect for you.

One company is actually making a privacy protected mobile device nicknamed the 'Snowden Phone,' named after former NSA analyst Edward Snowden. FreedomPop is a company that sells free wireless services, but now it is launching a phone which it will formally call the Private Phone. The Snowden Phone would secure all voice calls and texts with 128-bit encryption. It also provides VPN for anonymous web browsing.

The most interesting feature is that because it runs on FreedomPop's network, it is allowing users to change their phone numbers whenever they choose.
