Understanding DTEK by BlackBerry for Android

At the end of last year, BlackBerry launched their first Android powered device, the BlackBerry Priv. Apart from the slide out QWERTY keyboard, Priv brought another important application to Android underneath the BlackBerry hood, this is called DTEK.

DTEK by BlackBerry encrypts data on your device and “will automatically monitor your OS and apps and let you know when your privacy could be at risk and how you can take action to improve it. With just a quick glimpse you can see the overall security rating for your device – excellent, fair or poor – and what you can do to improve it. DTEK also tracks your applications and notifies you when someone is:

  • Taking pictures or videos without your knowledge
  • Turning your microphone on
  • Sending a text message
  • Accessing your contacts, location or financial information
  • PRIV is packed with lots of other security features like Password Keeper to store secret passwords and notes, Picture Password to make it virtually impossible for someone to break into your phone and encrypted messaging with BBM®. Take control and be confident knowing your personal data is being kept private” (Source: http://uk.blackberry.com/software/smartphones/android.html )
