Samsung Smartphones to Feature Kill Switch

Samsung Smartphones to Feature Kill Switch

The New York Attorney General had started a discussion in a meeting concerning smart phone thefts. However, Samsung, the South Korean electronics giant is way ahead of the competition as it readies itself to introduce a kill switch on its devices. The basic purpose is to do away with any danger of pilferage. By next month this feature will start appearing on all mobile devices that are churned out of the Samsung factories. Samsung representatives had already met with the Attorney General and talked about finding new ways of crime prevention. The “Secure our Smartphones” initiative which began a week ago was just the ensuing of efforts and plans to stop the criminal minds that snatched smart phones often at gun point and later on dissembled them and sold the parts in foreign markets where the demand was high.

The kill switch feature was deemed the most reliable since it would allow users to demobilize the smart phones completely. This would of course render them unusable thereby showing the mirror to the thieves or burglars. Thus the handset would not be functional even if a new SIM was inserted into it. The action is similar in many ways to disabling cash flow on a credit card for good. The plan was that this deactivation feature would arrive within a year’s time according to Korean website MK via BGR. But with Samsung’s quickness and prompt delivery the 365 days have been shortened to 30 days.

Behind this hard work lies Samsung’s image which it wants to preserve and boost at all costs. The fact that the tech colossus is not just motivated by greenbacks shows that it has a corporate philosophy. Responsibility and values matter more than revenues to this great organization with a heart of gold. Being the world’s #1 smart phone manufacturer, Samsung is careful not to let any negative issues arise that could potentially damage its reputation as an honest firm of fine-tuned workers.

The smart phone thefts had plagued the US as well as the rest of the globally charged climate. They accounted for over 40% of all thefts in big cities. To overcome the deleterious effects of this criminal act was paramount. A solution was in the pipeline and finally Samsung has declared that pretty soon the wait would be over. The kill switch will enable even the government itself to lock, wipe and disable any number of pilfered smart phones thereby making them of no use to the perfidious thieves responsible for the heinous crime.
