Updated: GuardMobile v1.11

It's nice to see developers staying on top of things and updating their products to add features or simply improve the applications overall performance. While we've already reviewed GuardMobile, we have received word that they have updated their security application again.

A few of the new features on this update (version 1.11.3372 to be precise) includes the hard reset covering both the internal memory and storage card; the ability to remotely change the primary control number; monitoring of calls; and activating your Windows Mobile password screen lock.

While the previous versions included commands to locate your missing Windows phone, this command timed out after five minutes. The updated version adds the command "force locate," which eliminates the time limit and survives soft-resets. You also have the command "wipe" which erases the data from the phone and storage card without resetting the system.

GuardMobile still does not have an online interface, and interaction is restricted to SMS commands from authorized numbers. Regardless, if you're looking for a on-board security application, the recent updates to GuardMobile keep it an attractive option to consider.
