The “Freedom Phone” is a brand-new smartphone by Bitcoin millionaire Erik Finman running “Freedom OS,” a form of Android without any Google apps preinstalled. Instead, the phone comes pre-installed with conservative apps and sites that are banned or unbanned from the Google Play Store, including:

  • Parler (A social network that was banned for posing a “public safety threat” for it’s use in the January 6, 2021 storming of the U.S. Capitol)
  • Rumble (Canadian online video platform actively courting prominent conservatives)
  • Minds (Blockchain-based social network adopted by white supremacists and supporters of Donald Trump)
  • Telegram (Cloud-based instant messaging software often used for illegal activities)
  • NewsMax (Conservative news network known for pushing baseless election fraud claims and vaccine misinformation)
  • One America News (Conservative news network known for promoting conspiracy theories and vaccine misinformation)

The phone costs $499 and claims to work with all domestic and international carriers. The entire storefront is powered via Shopify.
