Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX must be kept inside a secure storage locker. SCP-XXXX may only be accessed by, or under the supervision of, Level 3 staff.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a smartphone device, marked with "DESIGNED & ENGINEERED BY ARCLITE1 CORPORATION - MADE IN TACHUNDA2" on the back.

When SCP-XXXX is first powered on, it will automatically set itself up using the data of whoever turned it on. How SCP-XXXX obtains this information is unknown.

SCP-XXXX will instantly lose power when not handled. Should SCP-XXXX be passed from one person to another, it will instantly restart and set itself up with the data of the new handler. Whenever SCP-XXXX is switched on, its batteries will be fully charged. As SCP-XXXX has no external ports or traditional wireless charging capabilities, how SCP-XXXX obtains this charge is currently unknown. SCP-XXXX will drain its batteries within 8 to 24 hours, depending on use.

SCP-XXXX's main effect becomes apparent when the device's date and/or time is changed. If the device is set to a "valid" date/time, it will act as if it is in that time period, even if the required infrastructure would not have been available.

Personnel with Level 1 Access can view the full test log of SCP-XXXX below.

Discovery: SCP-XXXX was discovered during routine scans of Social Media websites for potential time travellers. Ms. █████ █████ posted on Facebook about a number of news stories days in advance of them actually happening. SCP agents embedded in Facebook's moderation team modified the dates of the posts and retrieved Ms. █████ for questioning.

During questioning, Ms. █████ revealed that she was given SCP-XXXX as a Christmas present from an unknown relative. Attempts to find this relative have failed. When it became apparent that SCP-XXXX was anomalous and Ms. █████ was not a time traveler, she was administered Class-A Amnestics, provided with a replacement device and released.
