Everyday, more and more smart devices enter homes that can access intimate conversations. Investigative journalism has highlighted the lack of regard Big Tech has for your audio privacy. For many, it is enough to make them turn off smart devices forever. Moreover, a study has shown that 40% of the US adults who own such a device have privacy concerns. How can we be sure that the devices are not secretly listening and recording to everything we say within our home?

The solution

Talo, is the first and only phone case designed to not just protect your phone's hardware, but to protect your privacy as well. Our innovative technology uses two ultrasonic speakers embedded in the case. These speakers emit frequencies inaudible to the human ear, but that block your microphone so that nobody can spy on you.

Talk will jam your microphone, securing your privacy without impacting the phone's normal functionalities
