Video: Nokia E7 Multitasking and F-Secure (with remote wipe for stolen/lost devices)

uptodateksa2 gives us another E7 hands on showing multitasking and F-Secure from Ovi Store.

As well as being an antivirus for your phone, it will also allow you to remotely wipe content from your phone if it’s lost or stolen.

Probably for some, the data is as precious as the phone itself (as if you haven’t backed up then the data is irreplaceable – worse if there’s sensitive data)

You can programme a back up number which will be sent a text message of the number if the lost/stolen phone has their SIM replaced. Reply with a code and it’ll wipe the device.

This comes with E7 by default.

Now I’d actually prefer to have it send me GPS location so I can go find the phone myself or inform the police of the asshole that’s nicked my phone (yeah still bitter about 7610 that got stolen from me :p not that 7610 had GPS..BUT if it did…)

    If you want to get your phone’s GPS position in case it’s stolen, get Track and Protect from ovistore.

    It has other featues too, you can for example activate the cameras and take pictures ect.

      In practice, the anti-thief works well if the thief doesn’t know about it.

      I read a story that one Chinese lost his N8 recently. He bought another one already,a big Nokia fan :). He got a report of the number from the stolen N8. He called a police and soon he got his stolen N8 back. The police disguised census and trapped the thief.

          You are welcome.

          BTW, have you got your own N8 already?
