Getting Started

This guide will walk you through the process of setting up your Blackphone (first-generation). When you’re finished with the setup guide, or if you have more detailed questions that aren’t covered here, you can always access support at, or download our PDF user guide here.

Tip: encrypting your Blackphone’s storage is recommended as a part of the setup process. To do this, your phone must be plugged in and the battery must have at least 80% charge. If you’d like to encrypt your device during setup, we suggest that during the next step you install the battery and let the phone charge to at least 80% before you continue. If you choose not to wait, you can encrypt your device later.
