Right then I’ve been testing out the Beta of BlackBerry Protect, the company’s new consumer remote backup/wipe/locate service that’s coming soon. It’s absolute, absolute genuis.
Finally I get mission critical security facilities for my device. I love it!
I’ve made a screencast of the key tools working:
- View Device Current Location (using Bing — nice, stupendously accurate to 2.35m!)
- Loud Ring
- Display A Message
- Lock Device
- Wipe Device
- Remotely Backup/Restore Device
It’s utterly brilliant. It’s rather cool seeing it do things remotely too.
I used all the facilities during the screencast (except the wipe/lock commands — I wasn’t quite ready for that!)
Check out the screencast:
During the screencast you will see me send a ‘remote message’ to my device. Here’s what that looks like:
More news on BlackBerry Protect soon, as I get it.
