San Francisco and New York Attorney General Impressed by iOS 7's Activation Lock
After previous news that government officials would be testing the efficiency of iOS 7’s Activation Lock against thieves, the San Francisco District Attorney George Gascón has come out in support of the feature, saying that “clear improvements” have been made to stop criminals.
For those of you didn’t know, Gascón and New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman brought in security experts from Northern California Regional intelligence Center to test out Apple’s Activation Lock feature as well as Absolute Software’s Lojack service on the Samsung Galaxy S4 in order to determine how effective they are against thieves. The following was mentioned about the topic:
"I'm very optimistic that they came and were willing to share their technology with us," Gascón said in a statement, also noting that Microsoft and Google had not yet come forth with their plans to combat theft. Gascón did not detail how the specific features work, explaining that they were not yet finished.
Activation Lock was announced at WWDC and is set to be included in iOS 7, which is expected to be released to consumers this fall.

It would be fun to the looks on the Faces of those iPhone Palette Thieves, were they to try to repeat their caper and encounter the new security in iOS 7!

Ha! Why don't they do this for cars? Make them useless when broken into? I mean what gets stolen more often? Go to any major city and cars top the list. I guess its a good start for phone security tho...how well it works only time will tell.
