Merkel reportedly gets NSA-proof phone with chip costing 2.5k euros — RT News

While the German federal prosecutor is investigating the alleged tapping of the chancellor’s phone, exposed by former US National Security Agency NSA contractor Edward Snowden, Merkel has been looking for ways to get her privacy back. About a year after Snowden’s leaks published by SPIEGEL, which stated the NSA was spying on some 500 million German communications every month, including up to 20 million telephone calls and 10 million internet data exchanges a day, German media reported that the country’s leader had ensured she is no longer on the snooping list. According to Bild.de, Merkel has acquired a BlackBerry device with a crypto-chip developed by Desseldorf-based company Secusmart. Choosing between a classic BlackBerry design and a touch screen variety, she reportedly picked the Q10 model with keyboard. The Chancellor had to wait for a year for her new phone to be made, German media said.
