BlackBerry Just Introduced An Awesome App To Enforce Privacy On Android

A few days after its return to the manufacturer of mobile phones, BlackBerry just introduced a new app for Android devices. Privacy Shade (already available in the Google Play Store) is presented as the solution to a day-to-day problem for any smartphone user: people sneaking around and over your shoulder the screen of your phone while you’re trying to read or reply a message or e-mail in a public place.

Thus, Privacy Shade offers the functionality of obscuring those selective parts of the screen that we are not using or visualizing in a specific way, while allowing us to continue interacting with the obscured parts, without impairing its functionality. To facilitate this, Privacy Shade allows the user to adjust the transparency of the darkened area by the desired degree of privacy.

The app is available to all Android users using the Android version 5.0 lollipop (or higher), and those who use version 7.0 Android Nougat will be able to easily customize their Privacy Shade from the system quick setup screen. Users of the latest BlackBerry smartphones (Blackberry Priv, DTEK50, DTEK 60 and the recently announced Blackberry KeOne) will be able to assign this app a hotkey that provides instant access to it.

The software, increasingly relevant to Blackberry

Privacy Shade represents one step further in the gradual conversion of Blackberry from its previous business model, based on the construction of hardware, to a company in which the provision of software and security solutions will count with increasing weight. The next step, as they have already announced, will be to carry their corporate messaging tool BBM Enterprise to iOS and Android systems.
