What happens when my device is stolen?


This question has come up several times in tweet streams and informal conversations. I am going to post a detailed answer here. It will be longer than a tweet or a paragraph, because this is a deep issue. Please give me a day or two to write it.


Attached is an early draft of my answer. As of Jan 10, 2019, this doc is still a work in progress. I will update my answer here, and the attachment, as it matures. Please respect the disclaimer in the header of the doc.What if someone steals my phone_.pdf (128.7 KB)
