Boeing to Release Self Destructing Smartphone

Aerospace company, Boeing, has released information about one of their new products which is to be released soon.

The new product is a self-destructing smartphone and has been designed to help those working in defence and homeland security to keep their confidential data secure.

The smartphone has been designed so that if anyone attempts to tamper with the phone, all data will be deleted and the phone itself will remain inoperable.

In documents that have been filed with the US Federal Communications Commission, Boeing explains the key features of the smart phone and that there is no point in even trying to tamper with this phone.

Boeing claim, “There are no serviceable parts on Boeing’s Black phone and any attempted servicing or replacing of parts would destroy the product. The Boeing Black phone is manufactured as a sealed device both with epoxy around the casing and with screws, the heads of which are covered with tamper proof covering to identify attempted disassembly.”

Boeing added, “Any attempt to break open the casing of the device would trigger functions that would delete the data and software contained within the device and make the device inoperable.”

Boeing believes that there currently is no smart phone available in the market that meets the needs for those working in defence and homeland security despite the continuing developments of consumer smartphones.

Boeing stated, “Despite the continuous innovation in commercial mobile technology, current devices are not designed from inception with the security and flexibility needed to match their evolving mission and enterprise environment.”

As smartphones have become more popular and multifunctional, the amount of confidential data being stored on them is increasing. Therefore, it is essential that those working in defence and homeland security can be sure that no matter what happens to their phone, the data being held on it won’t be accessible.

As smartphones on the whole are made more ‘secure’, it may lead to more confidential data being held on such devices unnecessarily which could pose further problems as owners become less cautious thinking that all of their data on their smartphone is secure.

Do you hold confidential data on your smartphone? Are you worried that this data may be compromised?
