The World’s Most Secure Android Smartphones
You wouldn’t put money in a bank that didn’t lock its safe. Or leave the doors of your home unlocked at night. Having a smartphone that doesn’t take your privacy seriously is the equivalent. The DTEK60™ and DTEK50™ ensure that how you share the private details of your life—your location, your pictures, your texts—is your decision. Not all smartphones are equally secure. With the DTEK series of smartphones, you have built in armour protecting your personal information.
DTEK60 and DTEK50 come with Android 6.0 Marshmallow, giving you full access to Google Play, home screen widgets, Google Now™, and the ability to easily connect to the things you use every day like your TV, car and connected systems in your house.
Google Play Apps
Get full access to over one million applications. Whether it’s Uber, Spotify®, Instagram or BBM®, you’ll find it in the Google Play store.
Display what’s on the screen of your DTEK series smartphone on your TV, game console, and other smart devices. Or easily stream music from apps like Spotify.
BlackBerry® Pop-Up Widgets allow you to view any app widget by simply swiping up or down across the icon on your home screen, giving you fast and private access to the information you need, when you need it.
Not All Smartphones Are Equally Secure
Your smartphone is an extension of your life and the people you share it with. Pictures of your kids. Where you live and work. The things you do together. These are very private details that should be kept safe.
With an NFC “bump”, bank info can be stolen. With malware, family pictures can be downloaded. It’s scary, but this does happen on other phones. With the DTEK series of Android smartphones, you don’t have to worry about this happening to you.
DTEK by BlackBerry App
Security can seem complicated, but DTEK series smartphones make it simple for you. The DTEK™ by BlackBerry® for Android™ app 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:
Device Security Built-in From the Start
- Taking pictures or videos without your knowledge
- Turning your microphone on
- Sending a text message
- Accessing your contacts or location
BlackBerry lives and breathes security and has taken extra steps to help protect you from malware, data breaches and any attempts to hack and tamper with your OS. DTEK60 and DTEK50 are packed with lots of other security features:
Updating the Security of Your Device - Long After You Purchase It
- Encryption protects your pictures or bank info from being stolen if you lose your phone
- Password Keeper to securely store all your passwords, log in information and important records
- Take control and be confident knowing your personal data is being kept private.
Many popular smartphones put the user’s private information at risk of being hacked due to slow security updates. BlackBerry has a record of being the quickest to deliver security patches. Other smartphones can take weeks, months or even years to deliver security patches, leaving you vulnerable and at risk. So even though you can’t see it, know that extra precautions are taken at both the hardware and software level to protect the DTEK series from malicious tampering.

When it comes to protecting business-critical data and personal privacy BlackBerry will keep you safe and secure.
Hardware Root of Trust
Security was built into the DTEK series from the start, rather than layering on defenses after production. Its manufacturing process establishes a hardware root of trust, a proprietary technique that adds security keys to the processor on DTEK60 and DTEK50 as they are built. Those keys are then used to track, verify, and provision each DTEK series smartphone, meaning that the authenticity and integrity of your device is guaranteed, as is the safety of the data it holds.
A Better Bootloader
When a user boots up their device, it’s important that they’re able to trust that only a BlackBerry signed OS can be loaded and it hasn’t been tampered with since the last restart. That’s where the secure boot process comes in on the DTEK series. Starting with the hardware Root of Trust, each stage of the secure boot chain must first verify that the next component is fully intact before proceeding.
