This sounds real good and crime prevention-y and all, but seeing as it gives the federal government the ability to activate the kill switch in your phone whenever they deem you to be a threat to national security, it’s value becomes less apparent and it’s true intent more obvious.

Washington – Yahoo News reports today that Google and Microsoft plan to join Apple in introducing theft-deterring “kill switches” in their smartphone operating systems, as part of an agreement with mayors and police agencies.

The announcement came in a report by the “Secure Our Smartphones Initiative” led by the New York state attorney general with officials from San Francisco and London.

The coalition of more than 100 elected leaders and law enforcement officials from major cities said the agreement means the three main smartphone platforms would soon add the feature as part of an effort to curb an epidemic of thefts.

The report said Google Android and Microsoft Windows Phone would add the feature — enabling a user to deactivate a stolen handset — after Apple included this last year.

Google and Microsoft did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
