There is one thing you should always know if you get your mobile phone lost or if it was stolen from you: you only have a small period of time to recover it. This happens because cell phone tracking systems don’t work only if the battery of your cellular phone is full. As soon as the battery will go dry, you won’t be able to track the cell phone down. This means that you won’t be able to use the security system that comes with it.
This security feature is called “wipe clean”. This is an application that only works with some tracking devices. iLocalis and Find My iPhone are two of the tracking applications that use this system. This security application is great if you lose your wireless phone and you know you will never see it again and it will delete every piece of data from your phone phone tracker.
This applications works exactly like a self destruct sequence. But you must know that this action cannot be reversed so if you are not sure where you left your cell phone, better track it down before using this security option. Think twice before using it because your phone might be placed under your pillow and if you will use this application you won’t be able to retrieve anything from it later. You phone will be like an empty husk Buzz journal.
This security option is really great because it can protect you against a lot of things if you lose your phone, mainly identity theft. As soon as you will activate wipe clean, you cell phone will become as sterile as a medical instrument. Use this application wisely.
I must tell you again: this security option should only be used if you know your mobile phone was stolen. Only when you will be sure that you won’t be able to retrieve it you can safely use wipe clean on your mobile device.
