The problem of smartphone theft is exacerbated by the fact that stolen devices are almost impossible to trace and find, despite existing search tools. In addition, it always threatens to violate confidentiality and loss of personal information. However, Meizu Technology has its own solution. The company recently patented a technology that allows users to easily locate lost or stolen smartphones and protect their data.

The patent document describes how this anti-theft technology works. When the owner of the smartphone activates it, the device receives certain instruction commands.

For example, the smartphone immediately goes into black screen mode, which makes it inoperable, and the SIM card slot is blocked so that others cannot use their SIM cards. As an additional step, you can make the smartphone connect to the Internet and send information about its location. This can be useful when the device is in working order and its main functions are not blocked.

The system makes it easy to find lost or stolen devices, as well as protect personal data.

In general, this technology contains similar solutions offered by some smartphone manufacturers. It remains unclear how this will all work, if at all. It is possible that Meizu technology will remain at the patent level, but it would be interesting to try it out.
