Apple’s iPhone comes with a very useful feature called kill switch, allowing users to lock the device in a case a thief steals it. The kill switch feature protects the important data of the phone from prying eyes by just deleting them. Now it seems like Android users will be also using this type of feature in their device.
According to Bloomber, Google has confirmed that it is planning to introduce a “factory reset protection solution” in the next version of the Android Operating System. Currently Google is offering anti-theft protection service which is very limited, via its Android Device Manager service, which is useless if the thief who has stolen your Android device turns it off and then hard resets it.
No details when Google is planning to unveil its next version of Android. But we are expecting to see it at Google I/O Developer Conference this week.
