Gionee’s encryption chip covers RAM, ROM and eFlash (OS) so that the encryption and authentication related information remains within the chip. The technique is supposed to prevent hackers from gaining access to users’ data by bypassing encryptions which are usually at the software level. In case there is an external damage to the chip, the encrypted data cannot be decrypted by the hacker, thus keeping you personal data safe and secure. The chip will safeguard all your data including call records, photos, notes, documents and more. Also Read - Gionee F8 Neo budget smartphone launched in India for Rs 5,499
