For those who are looking for some "mobile security" or at least the illusion, F-Secure just went ahead and made their Anti-theft for Mobile free for Symbian, Android and even us Windows Mobile users.
The software is a little of 2MBs in size to download and you need .NET CF 2.0, which should be in ROM already. The install was pretty basic and overall, very easy to setup and configure.
The app itself does the following:
- Remote lock
- Remote locate
- Remote wipe
- SIM control (if SIM swapped, device locks, sends you their #)
Sure, some of this you can do already with Microsoft's MyPhone, but this ain't a half bad solution either. We've been running it on our trusty Treo Pro (yeah, it even does that resolution, go .NET) and it seems to handle like a champ. Maybe we'll even try it sometime to see if it, you know, works.
Go to http://mobile.f-secure.com on your phone to download directly. Read more here.
Check out a few screenshots of what it looks like after the break!
