Leaks and lost data continue to plague both individuals and business workers. If we can find a lost phone, we should be able to locate a lost file.

Since the introduction of "Find My Phone" technology, theft of cellular phones has decreased dramatically. After Apple's introduction of the "kill switch" in 2013, iPhone robberies dropped in London by 24%, San Francisco by 38%, and New York by 19%. In mid-2017, San Francisco reported a 50% drop in smartphone theft due to the introduction of these technologies, and because end users have adopted new phones and operating systems.

Yet, we still see daily reports of leaked and stolen information from individual government agencies and consumer companies to the broad scale WikiLeaks trove.
