A couple of days ago a new icon popped in my blackberry list! Before trying it out, i decided to read about it to understand what the hell it is. It was something called Blackberry Protect.
Blackberry Protect is a service provided by Blackberry to help the users to protect their info on their phone, how? Well here’s what it can do:
- Lock your smartphone to protect its contents
- Track the location of your smartphone
- Back up your data (contacts, calendar, etc.)
- Erase all data from your smartphone
- Activate a loud ring tone so you can find your smartphone
- Display a message on your Home screen
So this is very similar to Mobile Me service by Apple, more like…THE SAME! This application is FREE, the only thing is that it’s not supported by devices that use the BlackBerry Enterprise Server or BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express.
