Both these smartphones have secure bootloader that uses multi-stage verification to ensure that the Android OS hasn’t been tampered with, in order to protect business data against hackers rooting the device. All data stored on the phone are protected with FIPS 140-2 encryption and the DTEK app lets you monitor and fix privacy violations. The DTEK60 also has a fingerprint sensor on the back for added security and convenience when unlocking the device, accessing Password Keeper app, and making purchases, including the Android Pay.
