A product that works for you, rather than you being the product.

Being more mindful of what we do on a mobile phone, and how we do it, is now a choice.

Enjoy a more intentional mobile experience with the Punkt. MC02, without compromise to you, or the things you wish to do.

It’s common knowledge that we all, no matter who we are, have our personal data tracked, targeted, collected, profiled, assessed and analysed across our digital footprints, or the profit and power of a small number of tech companies. Not just via individual brand platforms and apps, but throughout every place that you interact with on the internet, all of the time. If you’re ok with that, totally fine, it’s your choice. If you’re not so comfortable with it, the MC02 is here to provide a new choice. A new way to be more intentional, and more in control, with your digital and mobile use.

A break from the opaque;

An open approach to mobile tech.

The MC02 comes with complete transparency.

From the hardware design and manufacture, to the user interface and experience, we take a sincere approach to personal tech. No hidden agendas.

We don’t believe in keeping dark secrets, and this is reflected in what we do. Rather than promoting mystery and seclusion, the MC02 allows the protection of what is considered a basic human right: Personal privacy and data sovereignty – A liberty that is actually shrouded in the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights, yet is often disregarded.

We do not sell your data, we help you protect it.

The MC02 has a subscription* model, much like you would pay for entertainment streaming for instance, or for cloud data storage. Knowing exactly what you are paying for, rather than you being the product through the monetisation of your data.

*The first 12 months services subscription is included in the MC02 purchase price from new. Thereafter there is a monthly tariff **CHF14.99.
**The amounts of CHF14.99/mo may vary in your currency at the time of your renewal due to currency exchange rate fluctuations.

Your data, your choice,
your experience.

Allowing you to set boundaries with the endless surveillance commerce utilising your private data.

The MC02 gives peace of mind by providing an entirely safe, secure and smarter way of using a mobile device that is away from the prying digital eyes looking to gain from your personal information.

While we have to consent to the use of our data when agreeing to use a smartphone, are we actually aware or in control of what that consent constitutes? If you are looking to regain that control and true consent of your digital and mobile use, the MC02 can help by cutting the strings that can manipulate our every move and allow you to manage your own personal data.

The MC02’s innovative software works to give you a user experience like no other mobile device: All of the things you may be used to doing on a smartphone, but with a level of protection that allows a safer and more liberated enjoyment of using a mobile.

Your digital sanctuary.

No interruptions.

The MC02 has a home space that is entirely secure from external noise and influence. Your digital space, that you own and control. With a suite of on-device essential tools and services to seamlessly and efficiently run your life activities like no other mobile experience, safe in the knowledge that your data sovereignty is secure.

The MC02 home space features a suite of digital tools that are completely secure – the essentials that you would like to keep free of any advertising based data infiltration: Email, Calendar, Contacts, Notes, Storage and VPN.

An ecosystem of safe and secure communications with data sovereignty at its core to provide a mobile experience that is only available on the MC02, with all data stored under Swiss jurisdiction that protects the privacy and the fundamental rights of a person’s data.

Protection. By Punkt.

When it’s time to go outside of your safe space, you can still do all of things you’d usually enjoy doing on device, yet with an added layer of protection: No apps or websites can access the personal data in your home space for advertising related surveillance commerce and data capture. What’s more, the MC02 continues to protect your data from monetisation even when using third party apps.

Powered by new software from Apostophy, the MC02 allows the use of any apps you may wish to utilise in your daily life. But the added layer of protection on device, means that your data remains on device.

Leaving you safe in the knowledge that you are not being monetised with advertising based data collection. Privacy with no compromise.

Digital nomad.

The MC02 comes with a built-in VPN that allows you to protect your internet connectivity and privacy from wherever you are. Allowing you safe browsing even on public wifi hotspots away from digital attackers and data theft, keeping your information safe and private. Digital Nomad also ensures your internet history isn’t available to be sold for profit via the internet provider.

Knowledge leads to action.

Seen for the first time on a mobile phone, the MC02 allows you to take significant steps with a more ethical and informed approach to your tech use via its Data & Carbon Ledger. A real time view of not only the safety risk level of individual apps, but also your environmental imprint of app use on device. With the ability to control your exposure and impact, you are more informed with your choices. If you know, you know.

Effortless complexity.

A lot of tech is great isn’t it? And we recognise that our digital lives are layered with complexity, so the MC02 is designed to allow you to interact and maintain all of your digital affairs in a way that works for you.

Alongside the aesthetically designed hardware, its tailored UI and UX allow you to navigate the MC02 in a way that leaves you in full control of your technology, without any compromising of your complex digital matters.

Being intentional matters.

The MC02 helps you choose what you wish to do, without being drawn in to the things you don’t, making for better mental wellbeing, a healthier relationship with your tech, and with others around you.

And by helping cut out a lot of the excess usage on device, it also reduces environmental impact – meaning you can play your part in lowering the damage smartphones and data centres have, on their path to claiming the biggest carbon footprint in the tech industry. That’s a lot of wins.

Mobile tech for a new world.

Apostrophy is enabling Punkt. to undo some of the major problems with smartphone ownership from the past, and reimagine device ownership for a healthier future.

Punkt. devices can now be developed to serve a growing audience seeking a more intentional relationship with their personal tech. The partnership with Switzerland based Apostrophy and its digital services enables a completely seamless ecosystem of secure communications aligned with data processing regulations in Switzerland that are built into the country’s constitution and laws to protect the right of privacy. No need for third party applications that allow the compromise of personal data manipulation for corporate gain.

Aligned to Punkt.’s ethical values, Apostrophy enhances human capabilities and protects personal digital sovereignty – rather than creating further outsourcing and distance with the challenges of privacy, security, wellbeing and sustainability.

Practically speaking.

The MC02 is purposefully focused with its pre-loaded features, allowing you to build the device as you wish. Minimalist design and minimal distractions for a more intentional approach. 

We’re not in a tech spec race with the MC02, that’s not its purpose. Rather a totally new and better way to live with a mobile phone. However, you’ll also find all of the things you’ll most likely need too, including: A 6.7” full high definition+ screen, 64mp back / 24mp front camera, 6GB memory and long lasting 5,500 mAh battery.
