As I get ready for my trip to Vegas to attend WISPAPALLOZA 2017 the following product becomes relevant. Security, namely Identity Theft, is becoming more and more of something we have to deal with. Much like pickpockets, digital Identity theft is a real thing.
This is where the SyncStop by Xipiter comes in. This is a simple device. It allows you to charge your phone on any USB enabled connection, but does not allow syncing by cutting off access to the data pins of the USB connection at the hardware level.
If you travel alot I would suggest investing in a few of these. Let’s face it, we try and find an outlet anywhere we can when it comes to charging our phones. Hackers know this. A cleverly designed “public charge station” could be easily compromised to feed your data back to a remote server in just a few minutes and you would probably never notice.
