Librem 5 – A Security and Privacy Focused Phone


Freedom of Choice

We believe phones should not track you nor exploit your digital life. We are in the middle of a digital rights revolution where you get to decide the future. We at Purism are building a phone that does not run Android nor iOS, but runs PureOS or any GNU/Linux distribution where all the source code is available.

Note that the visual design of the phone is a work in progress and is subject to evolve based on technical requirements and people’s feedback.

Peace of Mind

Our phone will not wholesale gather your data for profit. It will not lock you into an ecosystem that controls you. It will not require you to enter banking details to simply get an app from an app store.

Does Not Track You

Our phone will be built to protect you by default. It will never exploit you for profit. It will be a phone for the people, by the people.

High Quality

We know how to build products that are convenient, privacy and security focused. Our phone will give you peace of mind knowing it does not track you.
