The eccentric digital security expert John McAfee finally revealed what he was working on in recent months. In a Twitter posting, the creator of the eponymous antivirus posed for a photo with a mobile phone that would have been created by him in partnership with MGT.
Called John McAfee Privacy Phone, the handset is described as the world’s first truly secure handset. So far, there is still not much information about the gadget, which should be released in June in alpha version.

From the published image, it is possible to see a device that measures between 5 and 5.5 inches and has a simple design and without curves. The installed operating system is Android.
The launch of a phone created by McAfee is something that draws a lot of attention mainly because the security expert is known for avidly criticizing the devices of today. According to him, no smartphone is really safe and the best thing to do is to buy a phone that only carries out calls and send SMS messages without any access to the internet.
