/e/OS is at the core of our privacy by design ecosystem. We have removed many pieces of code that send your personal data to remote servers without your consent. We don’t scan your data in your phone or in your cloud space, and we don’t track your location hundred times a day or collect what you’re doing with your apps.
/e/OS comes with beautifully designed open-source apps to cover most of your needs: browser, email, calendar, maps, camera …. And because /e/OS runs on Android, you can still run most of your favourite Android apps.

Access app directly from your phone

Our app directory will give you access to more than 60,000 free apps directly from the OS.

You can check if each application respects your personal data with our privacy score. It analyses each app for you and gives them a score from 0 to 10.

We are constantly adding new apps.

One ID for your privacy

/e/OS is synchronised with a free account with your email address that ends with “@e.email”.

You get 1GB of free and private storage, convenient backup and access for your mail, calendar, contacts, documents, tasks and notes.

Your future smartphone has been used before. Nevertheless, it has been checked and reconditioned to be fully working at our partner's facilities. We only select smartphones "Good-as-New" so there are no surprises.

In total, more than 35 points are checked on each device to guaranty the best possible experience.
