Anti-Theft System

Multiple layers of protection that allow you to maintain control over phone-stored data even in the event of device loss or theft.

SIM Matching – In case of an unauthorized SIM card insertion, you or your trusted contact are automatically notified by a text message containing the IMSI and telephone number, so you can locate the perpetrators.

Remote Lock – Allows you to block the phone remotely to prevent unauthorized access to your data.

GPS Localization – Locate your lost or stolen phone by a remote command (only for Android OS).

Remote Wipe – As the last instance of protecting your privacy, delete all phone-stored data remotely using an SMS command. Wipe clean all your contacts, messages and memory cards.

What if My Phone Gets Lost or Stolen?

First, use any cell phone to activate the Remote Lock on your Phone. Then find out its map coordinates. If you suspect that your data may be in danger, send a Remote Wipe command to delete all phone-store data and prevent its misuse.

 

What if Someone Tries to Use My Smartphone?

Specify a list of trusted SIM cards. In case someone inserts an unauthorized SIM, your friends or relatives whom you define as Trusted Friend will receive a wealth of information about the inserted SIM, including the phone number, IMSI and IMEI codes.

Although some vendors found a way around this, their applications require a root access,
something independent security experts consider quite unsecure.
