About

The Elegant Privacy Case for iPhones, developed by Spy-Fy Privacy Solutions 

*Android user? Scroll down to sign up for our Android waiting list.

Did you know that hackers, companies like Facebook, and government agencies like the NSA can gain access to your iPhone camera through built-in backdoors or apps on your smartphone?

We designed an elegant, simple, and user friendly iPhone Case that will put an end to iPhone camera espionage.  

The integrated Camera Privacy System allows you to be in control over your camera's privacy.

Design & Production Patented 

Use your iPhone's features as you always have.

When starting out with the design of the iPhone Privacy Case, we immediately agreed that the use of the Camera Privacy System should not disrupt your iPhone's features. So that's how we built it.

Using Face ID.  

The use of Face ID is one of these amazing features introduced since the iPhone X. We designed the iPhone Privacy Case shutters so they would not limit the use of your iPhone's Face ID.

The iPhone Privacy Case is designed to only block the 7MP camera.

The 7MP Front Camera can now be blocked at your command while still using Face ID.

Taking pictures "On the go".

Taking a great picture is a matter of choosing the right moment. Therefore, the rear privacy shutter can easily be open and closed. Convenient for taking pictures "On the go"!

Your flashlight always works.

Lost your keys in the dark? Going to bed silently while your partner is asleep?  Your flashlight will work perfectly even with the rear camera blocked.

Simply activate your flashlight and start the search. Nothing's changed.

Models Available Now (Apple)

At this point we have finalised a first production batch of the iPhone X&XS model. The models below will be manufactured when we are successfully funded. 

You can select either of these models at the end of the campaign when we're successfully funded:

  • iPhone 8
  • iPhone X/XS
  • iPhone XR
  • New iPhone 2019*

*Rumor has it, that the new iPhone 2019 will be the same screen setup as the current iPhone X models. We can then easily adapt the already manufactured model to the newest models.

The Journey of Creation

Idea Generation

The idea of a Privacy Case started out with feedback from our customer base. Who raised concerns about their smartphone's camera privacy. Could we integrate a Camera Privacy System into a premium smartphone case?

First Camera Privacy System Setup 

We needed to create a simple sliding privacy system that would combine minimalism, with user convenience. Preferably all to be handled with one hand. Moreover, you had to be in control over both the front, and rear camera separately. That's when we designed worlds first smartphone "Camera Privacy System".

Our First Full Prototype

The biggest challenge was to cover the front camera without having to block any of the other sensors built inside. After a thorough sensor analysis done by our engineers, we finally identified a way to only block the 7MP Camera to guarantee camera privacy. 

Our first iPhone Privacy Case was born.

The Company Spy-Fy and it's Founders

Meet Ties den Dekker (left) & Peter van de Rijdt (right). An entrepreneurial duo from the Netherlands and founders of the privacy protection company Spy-Fy (2015). 

Spy-Fy was founded on the premise that people deserve to have their privacy protected. By producing and distributing innovative, high quality privacy protection devices, Spy-Fy is making security simple and attainable for the masses. Spy-Fy is helping to restore a bit of that balance between the technology we love, and the privacy we deserve.

Risks and challenges

“The biggest risk a person can take is to do nothing.”

Nowadays, digital privacy concerns are becoming more and more serious. With that in mind, we started Spy-Fy back in 2015: A Dutch company started to develop, produce, and distribute elegant and minimalistic solutions to digital privacy concerns.

In 2017 we launched our first crowdfunding campaign for the Spyslide Webcam Cover. With over 8.000 Backers and 50.000 products sold in less than 2 months, we faced some production issues as a result of that overwhelming success. Months later than initially planned, we were finally able to deliver the Spyslide Webcam Cover to all our backers.

The Spyslide Webcam Cover is as of this day, still considered to be the best webcam cover in the world.

The lessons we learned from that first campaign helped to prepare for this campaign. We learned how to:

1. Better setup production chains.
2. Acknowledge the difference between producing 500, and 50.000 units. Prepare for the latter, not for the first.
3. Face your mistakes, communicate clearly, and solve the problem at hand.

With these learnings in mind, we are more confident than ever to manufacture and timely ship our iPhone Privacy Cases to all backers worldwide.
