A report by the GSMA (Global System for Mobile Communications) shows that there are over 5 billion mobile phone users worldwide. Security is an ever-present concern with so many people who use mobile phones.
Many people feel safe with their phones. The information should be secure if no one else has access to it. Many people feel that a password to protect a phone is enough. In fact, there are so many security measures that need to be taken. An excellent place to begin enhancing security is a jammer.
How do jammers work?
A cell phone jammer (Brouilleur telephone) is a high-tech security device that people may associate with. Quickly, spy movies and science fiction technology also come to mind. Cell phone jammers aren’t difficult to use, despite their appearance. They are simple to use and work in a straightforward manner.
A cell phone jammer is not the same as a printer that jams. Cell phone jammers do not block but interfere with each other. Like most wireless electronics, cell phones work on signals. Every incoming signal will be transmitted at a particular frequency. The frequency of an incoming signal can vary depending on its source, data, sender and other factors.
Most cell phone jammers can jam a signal by using the same frequency as the signal. The cell phone will not register the conflicting signals properly.
Mobile and immobile
A cell phone jammer can either be mobile or placed in one location, depending on its strength. A mobile phone jammer is smaller, lighter and more portable.
They are usually weaker than an immobile jammer. These factors can vary depending on the product. They will also require a portable power source, such as battery operation or charging.
A mobile unit installed on a fixed base usually has stronger signals. This means it can jam more signals simultaneously and covers a larger area. This means it won’t typically need to use any power source other than the one that is already installed.
A different type of installation will suit different needs. An installed version might be preferred by someone who wants to prevent cell phone signals from being jammed in their home or personal property. A mobile version is better for those who commute and need to keep their phones safe.
What about Legality?
It is important to check whether cell phone jammers can be legal. In times of emergency, people use their cell phones to communicate. Is it legal for someone to block your cell phone from reaching you, or to prevent others from using your cell phone?
The legality of illegal activities depends on the specific area. Most Americans have declared them illegal. Some states allow them to be used on private property, or in certain strengths. They are still illegal in the United States.
You should always check in your local area to confirm that your signal jammer permits you to use it. We ship our products worldwide, even though laws and allowances may differ. It is best to review the regulations applicable to your state, country, or municipality.
What are the risks?
Signal jammers can pose some dangers. You could face heavy fines or even imprisonment for using a signal jammer in an illegal area.
A public use of one could prevent someone from calling for help when they need it. A cell phone jammer can prevent an ambulance from reaching someone who is in serious condition.
Your phone will also lose signal if it jams the signal. This means you could miss out on important information. If you are waiting for a call, make sure to not use one.
Signal jammers may not be infallible. You might not find the right unit for you if it blocks a particular frequency. You should ensure that the jammer you are using can meet your requirements.
Cell phone jammers are illegal because they interfere with police signals. A jammer can prevent a call for assistance from reaching authorities when they are needed. No matter what jammer you choose, you should be able to deactivate it quickly in an emergency.
