Google-free Volla Phone: No monitoring of push notifications
Apple and Google come under fire after revelations about government surveillance by US senator
US Senator Ron Wyden has uncovered surveillance practices in government use of push notification data on iPhones and Android devices running on Apple and Google's servers. Wyden is calling for more transparency and permission for Apple and Google to inform customers about government data access. The revelations have also caused a stir in Germany, as Democratic allies of the USA have requested metadata via push messages. The German company Volla Systeme provides a real alternative here: its Volla Phones come with the specially developed Android operating system Volla OS, which offers a Google-free environment without cloud services and emphasizes data protection and self-determination through a unique security mode.
