    I found a playbook for sale in my area and im wondering is it possible with settings on the device or blackberry UEM to minimize the attack surface and tighten the creaking PlayBook OS reasonably well against modern threats?

    do the parental controls provide sufficient or any attack surface reduction?

    all I need it for is the android messaging app signal and mumble. I plan to use a vpn to subvert krack.

    As far as I know Signal requires Android 4.0+, which the PlayBook is incapable of supporting (it's stuck on antediluvian 2.3).

    Frankly, don't bother.

    Vpn for sure (NordVPN comes highly recommended) but that's all I can think of. The device hasn't received an update in a long time so it is what it is.

    Besides the "security thing" you won't get Signal or Mumble to work. They both require more android than the PlayBook can offer.
