The Nexus 6 Already Has of Kill Switch, But This Is Optional

Long ago that major manufacturers said its intention to integrate systems that avoid the theft of terminals or at least minimizaran consequences. The famous Kill Switch It is the most popular, and some devices already integrated it.

It is the case of the new Nexus 6, which provides this mechanism – that called ‘factory reset protection’ – and which need a Google ID and password before you can perform a the device initialization, process that only works if we have some kind of password to unlock the terminal.

The problem is not that logical need both the fact that by the time This system is optional. If you activate it we will have access to the ability to delete data remotely, so curious potential will not have access to them. The problem is that the aim of these mechanisms – that the thieves no longer have interest in our terminals – disappears if this mechanism is optional.

In the case of the new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, for example iPhone, the option is enabled natively, something that has been proven effective against possible thefts. Already in 2013 option introduced in earlier terminals made it optional–as they have now done Google and Motorola with the Nexus 6 – but the impact was clear, and thefts fell according to a study by the NYPD. We will see if new U.S. legislation in regions such as California–where the Kill Switch is mandatory, not optional–achieved little by little this measure be extended to the rest of the world.
