Question On/Off Switch

Under the steering column there is an on/off switch. I havn't been able to figure out what it goes to. I was curious weather it was factory installed or if the previous owner put something on it? Can someone tell me if it is factory installed or if it is something else? Does anyone else have it? It is a little silver switch.

If I had to bet it is not a factory switch, flip it see if it does anything, look for wires coming off the switch and trace where they go.

My guess is alarm related if its under the steering column, is there an aftermarket alarm installed on it or do you have a pic of it?

could be a remote starter disable (safety) switch.
