Hardware

Accessories

This tablet running LineageOS 18 is going to be more secure in some ways and less than others in comparison to your typical Android tablet.

Why it’s more secure

LineageOS is based off the Android Open Source Project which is very secure in general. As long as you download reputable apps from trusted sources like the F-Droid store or Aurora (Play) Store the odds of someone compromising your device are very low. Apps are heavily sandboxed in Android and have limited access to device files.

Because LineageOS is free and open source software you can be sure there aren’t any backdoors put into the software by manufacturers. The code is also being constantly audited by the Android community.

LineageOS will often support devices with software security updates beyond what the manufacturers will.

Why it’s less secure

The bootloader is not locked on devices running LineageOS.

If there an attacker has physical access to this device the tablet will be less secure since the software on the device can be modified.

Conclusion

A degoogled tablet running LineageOS is most likely going to be secure enough for the average person.

Unless you are a targeted individual with corporate or state secrets, or a journalist it should meet your security needs.

There are currently no official builds for LineageOS 19 for tablets and unofficial builds have a few bugs that can make using some features of the tablet difficult. For example pop-out players for video apps do not work correctly.

There are also no microG builds for LineageOS 19.

That being said there is an unofficial build of LineageOS 19 that works moderately well with Android 12. If you would like this unofficial build to be installed please note this in your order notes at checkout. Note that we will not pay for return shipping in case you regret going this route.
