Thanks for being one of the first

In 2013, we embarked on a journey to shake up the industry with the Fairphone 1. Thanks to you, the pioneers who supported our mission, we started building a movement for fair electronics. We’re proud of everything we’ve achieved together, but unfortunately, we’ve reached the point where we can no longer support our first phone. Read more about why we made this difficult decision in our blog post.

Below you’ll find resources to help keep your phone going for as long as possible, as well as responsibly say goodbye if the time has come.
