Ramiro Romani CEO and founder of Above Phone, talks about his journey as a software engineer working for various companies and his realization that these businesses prioritize profits and data collection over user privacy. Inspired by his experiences, he quit his job and started working with activist movements, eventually founding Above Phone. The device combines secure and modern hardware with a transparent operating system, providing users with a privacy-focused alternative to Google and Apple devices. Above Phone does not make any connections to big tech companies and offers alternatives to popular apps and private communications that cannot be spied on. Ramiro envisions communities running their own universal utilities for email, search, and chat to ensure user privacy and freedom.
