Windows Phone 7 Kill Switch detailed

Posted on Saturday, November 06 2010 @ 00:01:41 CET by

Microsoft revealed some information about the Kill Switch option of Windows Phone 7, a feature that will enable the company to remove dangerous applications from your handset.
PC Pro explains exactly how they can deal with the situation if it arises. The first and the easiest option for Microsoft is to remove the application directly from the marketplace. This way, users will no longer see the application online if they went searching for it, but this wouldn't remove the problem application from a users handset if they had already downloaded it.

Microsoft's Todd Biggs, who is the director of product management went on to say that if an application is dangerous they could initiate a kill switch style action. In this move, when a users handset does a check for marketplace updates, which Windows Phone 7 automatically does, if the application is bad enough, Microsoft can remove it directly from your handset.
