Your phone is your portal to the digital world, where all kinds of sensitive activity happens. It’s important to make sure your phone isn’t leaking all this information about you, and the operating system you use makes a huge difference. Android and iOS collect a huge amount of data from you, so in previous videos we’ve explained how to instal GrapheneOS instead.

In this video we dive into detail about what makes Graphene great for privacy, explain how to get started and what you need to know before you even buy your phone, and walk you through how to optimize your settings to really get the most from your device.
