We live in a world that’s becoming increasingly cable-less, which gives us more room and freedom than the cable piles of yesteryear that required us to come up with clever cable management solutions that took way too much time and effort. However, when you may everything wireless, you also make it more accessible to security intrusions. Samsung is seeking to rectify that problem when you’re connecting to your printer with its new Cloud Print app.
Cloud Print is set to launch on Android in June and iOS shortly thereafter, and it’s going to come with a variety of new security measures. The primary security addition is the encryption of your data as it streams from your device to your printer, which will be even more secure if you use Samsung’s Knox service during the process. The Android version will even make use of NFC pairing to allow you to connect your devices to up to 20 printers, making mobile device printing easier and safer than ever before.
I’m not sure this is really necessary for most people, but it’s always good to know your data is safe and secure at all times. The last thing you want is someone stealing your work as you’re trying to print it out.
What do you think of the new changes? Are they warranted?
