What do you know a kill switch has done an amazing job in preventing the problematic epidemic of smartphone thefts. In the first place, we are talking about the iPhones. However, this should be a strong indication for the rest of the smartphone family. The things have changed dramatically.
Three biggest cities in the world of smartphones have become the safest places for your cyber pets. San Francisco has recorded a decrease of more than 40% in the number of stolen smartphones compared to the previous dark periods. New York is not too far away from it with the impressive 25%.
What to say about London and the unprecedented 50% of its theft decrease? The kill switch has changed it all. It simply does not make any sense stealing a smartphone, which is protected with a kill switch, does it? The smartphone empire has obviously found a way to strike back and ensure its wealth.
Our smartphones are safe and sound thanks to the kill switch. Now, we can kindly ask Apple, and Google if interested, to spread the field of cyber protection. We do not need a kill switch for the software itself, but we need something equally effective to make the hackers think twice before they strike.
