What can a user do ? Use multiple devices ?

Used to be the case that for reliability, safety and security, critical systems were triplicated across hardware and software. The underlying premise being that no single flaw would exist in all 3 instances.

Maybe a really paranoid smartphone user should have a selection of handsets for the same reason ?

Not convenient, of course. But we know that we trade convenience for security, don't we ?
