SureCop Windows Mobile Security App is Released

42Gears has released SureCop v1.0, a mobile phone and location tracking application for your Windows Phone. The three main features of SureCop are:

  • Remote Lock: Locks your phone and requires a unique password to unlock
  • Remote Wipe: Erases all data on the Windows Phone main memory and expansion card.
  • Location Tracking: utilizes Google Maps and works with phones with or without built in GPS.

All three features are activated via SMS Message to your phone from a partnered phone. That prevents anyone from triggering these features.

Additionally, SureCop Manager is available as a free tool to help manage multiple phone. SureCop is compatible with Windows Mobile Professional (touch screen) versions 5.0, 6.0, 6.1 and 6.5. No word if 42Gears plans to transition to Windows Phone 7.

SureCop will run you $19.95 and a free trial version can be downloaded at allowing you to try before you buy.
