Instead, the sit on the application layer, which is the most vulnerable area, and the easiest to circumvent.

Unlike those other smartphones, FINNEY™ utilizes the SIRIN OS™, which is a stock version of Android that has been modified to include significant security features in every layer of the operating system beginning from the kernel itself.
