Dutch telecommunications provider KPN has struck a deal with encryption service Silent Circle to provide customers in Belgium, Germany and The Netherlands with encrypted phone calls and text messages, PCWorld reports. Silent Circle currently has servers in Canada and has plans for one in Switzerland. KPN has said it plans to build a server in The Netherlands so that data doesn’t leave the country, the report states. This June, KPN customers will be able to download Silent Circle services Silent Phone and Silent Text. Silent Circle has also been working with Geeksphone to create the Blackphone, a smartphone designed to protect user privacy.
