There is legislation in discussion to force smartphone companies to install a kill switch in case of theft. What is your opinion? Personally, though I understand the concern of people that are for it, I have to say I am divided in how I feel about the move. On one hand we use our phones to do everything and it contain our lives within it so I would understand why someone would want the extra step in place to protect that information. With that said there are apps and encryption technology already out that will protect your information. I do not think it is necessary to force a smartphone company to put a switch in a device because there are already means to protect your phone via lock screen, reporting it stolen to prevent someone from using it, and remotely wipe the device with protection apps. I think we would be better suited to teach people how to use those features vs have the government demand a company do something we can do ourselves. Am I saying there is no need for one.... no, but why not allow that to be up to the manufacturer plus how do you implement that? If you make it a switch on the device itself then what happens when someone's kid accidentally push it while playing a children's game. If you make it via software then how would that be different from what we have now? And it by dialing a number then why not make it where that number will deactivate the phone from the network. Am I missing a scenario where the kill switch is needed?
