Starting with PGP implementation in the email-App to verify contacts and for encrypted communication to otr-plugin for xmpp chat or encryption for folders, it would be nice, to implement good standards in native apps to protect the users privacy, maybe even a native TOR option for www-access.

I think, good privacy is one point to strongly differentiate from the competitors.

@ramoth PGP doesn't enhance privacy, it confirms validity of the person and/or uses encryption, also perhaps change the title more like "enhance security and privacy in native apps" because this title isn't really clear to say what you want....

Thanks for the hint, edited accordingly.

I assume the privacy and security issues of other platforms is a major push factor. If Jolla came with PGP and OTR support, and disk encryption, it would have a good pull factor to get these users. The same users are likely to value also Jolla's open source code and other features.

Please tag this with 'security'. And also look at the other items in tag 'security'

@otto why not retag yourself? and add security to it?

Completely agree on the request that privacy needs to be enhanced although would like to point that we have these covered as separate topics already.

Request you to vote on these above topics and close the Q if it is fine.
