Sony has taken its “my Xperia” remote security service out of beta and it rolling it out in phases globally.
The “my Xperia” service is remote security app that can locate your Xperia smartphone and wipe the phone clean remotely if so required. The service has a few other nifty functions that you can activate remotely as well.
- Activate alarm even when the phone is in silent mode
- Lock the phone to deny access to data
- Send a message to the phone with your contact details
- Completely erase both internal and external memory
The app uses your Google ID and looks to be easy to use but Sony say timing and availability may vary by model, market and operator.
You can try out my Xperia here.
