Google working on new revolutionary smart watch patent!

Will display private information only when user is wearing the watch!

With the advent of the biometric-based locking system, privacy on smartphones has become better. So now there’s a lesser chance of leakage of sensitive information. But today’s wearables are not able to achieve similar levels of protection of data.

According to tech publication MSPoweruser, Google recently submitted a new patent application to address the privacy of smartwatches.

The patent information shows that the smartwatch will recognize whether the user is currently wearing the device and display different information on this basis. Smartwatches will display private information such as text messages, messages, and calls to users, while people other than users can only get public data such as weather and time.

It is reported that the source of private information is mostly mobile phones, tablets, computers and servers. The new patent also allows smartwatches to determine whether the data is private or public.
