Your Privacy Is Protected Chip By Chip

Every hardware chip individually selected with emphasis on freedom-respecting

Purism Librem 13 Exploded View

All other laptops use hardware chips coupled with software that can betray you. News stories have shown how these chips can surreptitiously transmit voice, networking, picture or video signals. Other chips are used to install spyware, malware or viruses. These built-in vulnerabilities can turn “your” computer into “their” computer. Purism works with hardware manufactures and Free software community towards making hardware that respects your privacy and protects your security.
