Android is still a relatively young platform and one of the things that it’s currently missing is the ability to take control of your phone remotely to backup files, or to lock down and wipe data if it’s stolen. Apple offers its MobileMe service for the iPhone while Microsoft has its MyPhone offering, but Google currently has no similar service.
This is where WaveSecure comes in. It enables you to remotely lock down your device and wipe data so as to protect your privacy. You can also backup your files directly from your phone or remotely from the WaveSecure web interface and then restore them to a replacement device.
And if your phone is lost or stolen you can remotely activate its GPS chip to locate it on a map and even track calls made from the phone or detect if new SIM cards have been put into it. With an annual subscription fee of just $19.99, the service is a lot cheaper than Apple’s MobielMe, which costs $99 per year.
WaveSecure is an excellent way to add a bit of extra security to your phone and the data held on it.
