加州的手機防竊提案讓失竊率下降不少...

2013 的時候提過「加州的手機防竊提案...」,後來在 2015 年生效:

In a press release sent to reporters on Thursday, George Gascón said that since the law went into effect on July 1, 2015[,]

在兩大陣營都有類似的功能:

而執行到現在已經兩年了,手機的失竊率下降不少:「San Francisco DA: Anti-theft law results in huge drop in stolen phones」。

[S]martphone-related robberies have fallen 22 percent from 2015 to 2016. When measured from the peak in 2013, "overall robberies involving smartphones have declined an astonishing 50 percent."

變成要找人殺肉才能處理,增加被竊後的處理難度與成本...

加州的手機防竊提案...

由於手機的行竊與搶劫案件已經是美國目前遇到的重大問題,所以有幾位法界人士提案,要立法強制對手機業者實作行動電話的防竊機制:「Proposed California Law Would Mandate Smartphone Kill Switch」,報導在「Proposed California law would mandate smartphone kill switch」。

希望藉由這套防竊機制,讓銷贓變得困難,希望藉此降低手機行竊與搶劫的案件數量...

Kill Switch 的機制並沒有詳細說明,不過應該就是類似目前 Apple 的方式?可以遠端強制對手機下鎖上甚至銷毀的命令...
