Hello, I am H2spice. I work in security development here at LINE.
This post will cover how your data can be leaked if your mobile device is stolen, and what we at LINE are doing to prevent that: a new feature called “True Delete.”
There are many instances where people lose their mobile devices, or leave their devices unattended in places where anyone can access them. Many serious problems may arise if someone else obtains your mobile device and gains access to the information inside. Devices like your smartphone contain information such as call records, messages, contacts, schedules, browsing history, navigational data, photos, memos and so on. Information leaks like this can lead to an invasion of your privacy, or a breach of confidential company information in some cases. There have been reports where thieves would steal mobile devices for this exact purpose. While our mobile devices bring us great convenience, one mistake and they can be used against you.
