BharOS: 5 Key Points On India’s Indigenous Mobile Operating System

New Delhi: In a bid to make the country “Atmanirbhar”, now India has come up with its own indigenous mobile operating system.

This operating system has been developed by IIT Madras (IIT Madras)-incubated firm.

The developers have named it ‘BharOS,’ and announced that this OS can benefit the country’s 100 crore mobile phone users.

BharOS: 5 things you should know

1. Developed by JandK Operations Private Limited (JandKops), the goal of BharOS mobile operating system, according to its creators, is to provide consumers greater freedom, power, and flexibility, which can only be modified according to their needs. The technology claims to completely change how users perceive security and privacy on mobile devices.

2. This mobile OS comes with no pre-loaded apps. Contrary to Android, where OEMs supply the phone with some native and default Google apps, customers will receive the majority of the storage capacity. One won’t be compelled to use apps they may not be familiar with or confident with if they use BharOS.

3. You will be able to receive Native Over the Air (NOTA) patches, just as Android smartphones. The NOTA upgrades, according to the developers, are downloaded and installed on the device without the need for user intervention.

4. The OS will also give users access to reliable applications from Organization Specific Private App Store Services (PASS). According to the makers, PASS offers access to a vetted selection of apps that have undergone rigorous testing and adhere to the organization’s privacy and security criteria. Users can therefore feel secure knowing that the programmes they download are secure. “They are safe to use and have been tested for any potential security vulnerabilities or privacy concerns.”

5. BharOS will only be available to particular institutions, “whose users handle sensitive information that requires confidential communication over restricted apps on mobile.”
