Picture yourself in an everyday scenario—plugging your phone into a public charging port while sipping away on a cappuccino.

Seems harmless, right? But lurking beneath are potential threats hidden in these innocuous-looking ports – and not just two shots of espresso kind. 

Everyone said we’d have flying cars in 2023, but instead, we got a future where even your sacred morning coffee ritual is under threat from invisible data thieves. Thankfully, OSOM has risen like a phoenix from Essential’s not-so-essential ashes.

Their mission? To shield us from these digital pickpockets. And their weapon of choice in this cyber warfare? A seemingly innocent USB-C Privacy Cable.

Now you might be wondering, “How does it work?” Well, it’s almost as simple as ordering your favorite latte.

This cable comes equipped with a switch that lets you control the data flow between your device and whatever suspicious-looking port you’re plugged into.

Flip between data transfer or charging-only modes

Flip it one way for data transfer; flip it the other way for charging only – no data exchange allowed. It’s like having a bouncer at the door of your device deciding who gets to party inside.

This isn’t some fancy tech toy designed to gather dust; it’s as essential as that caffeine shot you need every morning.

“Our Privacy Cable is an elegant solution for consumers to control their data flow,” says Mary Ross, Chief Privacy Officer at OSOM. “With one flip of a switch, users reclaim control over their device.”

So now we can all play James Bond during our coffee breaks or airport layovers. This nifty cable promises reliable protection against those cyber villains who’ve found a playground in every corner of our connected lives.

Ready for this slice of spy life minus the shaken-not-stirred martinis? It’s available right now on Amazon for $30 – cheaper than most monthly streaming subscriptions and arguably more useful!

So here it is, folks—a dash of cynicism served with your daily dose of tech news. In today’s world, where privacy seems like an afterthought, OSOM offers us all a chance to fight back one charge at a time.
