Your iPhone might not sell your data, but it still collects it. Apps like Instagram and TikTok might not track you across platforms, but they track you within their own apps. We’ve accepted giving away our data for convenience, but there’s a new option: Punkt’s MC02, a 5G smartphone focused on data security and privacy. It has a simple interface to avoid overwhelming you, includes a built-in VPN for protection, and runs on Punkt’s Apostrophy OS, which separates user data for added security. Plus, your data is stored on a Swiss cloud server, away from government reach.

The MC02 offers a secure and smarter way to use your phone, protecting your personal information from prying eyes. While most smartphone apps track users online, the MC02 provides a digital sanctuary. It stores user data in Switzerland, ensuring compliance with GDPR, HIPAA, and PCI regulations. Plus, it includes on-device tools like email, calendar, contacts, notes, storage, and VPN, all without advertising-based data infiltration.

The MC02 is a sleek and functional phone that balances modern features with minimalist design. It boasts a 6.7″ full HD+ screen, 64MP back and 24MP front cameras, 6GB RAM, and a durable 5,500 mAh battery. However, its true appeal lies in its operating system and ecosystem. Running on Apostrophy, it prioritizes data sovereignty and security. It comes with a built-in VPN for safe browsing, secure communication tools, and a Carbon & Data Ledger to track privacy and environmental impact of apps.

Punkt offers a unique subscription model with the MC02. The initial purchase includes 12 months of Apostrophy Services, which includes security and privacy tools. After that, there’s a monthly fee, ensuring users pay for privacy, not ads.

The MC02 costs €699 ($755 USD) and includes a subscription to the operating system. The first 12 months are included, then there’s a $17 monthly fee for ongoing access to Apostrophy’s secure ecosystem. If you want to regain control of your tech life, the MC02 offers a sanctuary where your data, choices, and peace of mind are all part of the service.
