Cyber Killing – A Safe Feeling

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.

California Kill Switch Bill

It has been cooking for quite some time. Now, it is time for us to see some actual working in this matter. California is the first state with the kill switch bill in force. You do not have to be a rocket scientist to know what is this bill all about, do you? You cannot have the absolute anti-theft guarantee.

However, you can make all smartphone thefts absolutely pointless. With this feature you can log into your web account and kill your stolen smartphone literally. Its interior will become a melted and useless material in a matter of seconds. How can you be sure with this one?

Well, for what is worth, this is supposed to be a default feature for all smartphones bought in California. Although, some elements which can survive the kill-switch can still be used for spare parts, the damage for the thieves has already been done. It is simply not worth all the risk and trouble.

On the other side, we sure hope that the feature itself is protected enough. The last thing we need is some hacker killer, who decides how many smartphones to eliminate with a simple push of a kill switch button. Let us hope that we have not created the ultimate weapon against the smartphones.
