Purism makes computers and mobile devices that do not track you. Purism products are specifically designed, from the bootloader and motherboard to the operating system and applications, to respect and protect your privacy and security, out of the box. Purism devices feature physical hardware "kill switches" to sever the camera, microphone, data (and in the tablets, GPS) connections for additional security. Purism hardware is preinstalled with the world's best privacy applications, including QubesOS, the Linux operating system recommended by security experts for ultimate defense against malware, tracking, viruses, spyware, ransomware and other threats. Privately held and crowdfunded, Purism has raised $1.1 million in its first year, solely with crowdfunding and product preorders. According to ZD Net, the Librem is one of the top 2 crowd-funded PC hardware projects in history. According to Wikipedia, it is one of the top 100 hardware crowdfunds in history, and it is the #1 opensource hardware crowdfunded product. Purism has received widespread global press coverage in PCWorld, InfoWorld, Engadget, Wired, TechCrunch, Mashable and ArsTechnica, and early product reviews are positive. (****). The product has been funded and manufactured and the first Librem 13" notebooks are currently shipping to backers. The Librem 15 rev. 2 laptop with 1K screen and 4K screens is shipping. Purism manufactures its own motherboards, and the final assembly of computers is done in a secure facility in South San Francisco, USA. The Librem 11 and 10 tablets are prototyped, and will go into production as early as September 2016 if funding goals are met.
