I wanted to use a safe OS on my mobile phone, but Google is clearly not the right answer.
I am seeing advertisements simillar to what I searched few days ago even when I use an vpn.:confused:
I saw there are mobile phones running on linux now but I don't have a luxury to buy a new phone right now.
I have an old smart phone(512 MB ram-samsung galaxy fame) which I don't use now.
Is there any way to replace android with linux on my old phone?
If there is, please let me know.
Thanks in advance.

Ubuntu Touch is Linux-based mobile OS. Look up a review of it, and if it sounds like something you can see using, root your phone, install libreboot, and then install UT. Be aware this process isn't as easy as it sounds. You'll have to look up a tutorial, and be very careful to avoid bricking it.
