There’s a new(ish) smartphone operating system aimed at folks who want to be able to run Android apps, but want additional security and privacy features. It’s called GrapheneOS, and it comes from Daniel Micay, the former lead developer of another security-based Android fork called CopperheadOS.
After the founders of Copperhead had a falling out last year, Micay turned his attention to the Android Hardening Project, which he recently renamed GrapheneOS to better reflect what the project has become.
Official images are currently available for Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 3, but source code is available if you’re interested in installing it on another device with an unlocked bootloader.
Is there a working contact editorial address email address for the site for editorial submissions procedure? I’ve not been able to get a response from the Thom, Adam or crew ones on the website, and haven’t been able to get a response from Thom on Twitter. I was semi-regular a contributor about ten years ago.
