"Privacy is this very fundamental thing that everybody understands," he said. "The essential choice is whether or not you allow people to look over your virtual shoulder. Blackphone addresses that."

"I think it's important," he said. "We want folks to realize they don't need to accept a bunch of inconvenience. There is no reason not to take advantage of that when the technology makes it so easy and accessible."
