We all are worried about our data especially when we lose our phone, we always had an option to remotely lock our phone and ring it when you can’t find it. Qualcomm today announced Kill Switch an advanced version to save your phone from hacks.
Qualcomm® SafeSwitch™ technology is designed to help prevent device theft and protect user data and privacy. SafeSwitch is engineered to work with kill switch software apps to enable you to remotely disable your mobile devices if it’s lost or stolen and re-enable it if it’s found. Built to confirm that device lock requests are coming from a trustworthy source, Safeswitch also has the ability to decrease the likelihood of malicious device lock attacks.
Qualcomm SafeSwitch technology is built with a hardware-based mechanism that detects when data or software diverges from its certified state. If this happens, the device locks during power-on and a key is needed to unlock it.
