Hello! We are Purism, and we’re trying something different.
We are pushing the most ambitious hardware+software liberation effort ever undertaken, with a strong focus on security.
Purism follows a strict belief in users’ rights to privacy, security, and freedom. We developed Purism so that users can have access to the highest quality computers without compromising these beliefs.
Our essence, in a nutshell:
- We believe people should have secure devices that protect them rather than exploit them.
- To serve that purpose, we provide everything people need into a convenient hardware and software product.
- We offer high-quality privacy, security, and freedom focused computers and software.
Going down the rabbit hole
Here are some more advanced topics. Be advised: you cannot unlearn what you will have learned below…
Our beliefs are aligned with yours
We believe in users’ rights. We believe you should not be monitored, nor recorded, without your consent. We believe you should not surrender your freedom and your information to corporations for their profit. Here at Purism, we work with hardware manufactures and the free software community to build high quality hardware that respects your digital life.
When you use a Purism device you know you are operating the best hardware and software that always has your rights to privacy, security, and freedom in mind. We place respecting users’ rights to privacy, security, and freedom above all else.
The founders of Purism developed the Philosophical Contract, that we all abide by, which was adopted from the Free Software Foundation, expanded to include hardware manufacturing as it relates to software.
