You might remember we piloted our remote security service “my Xperia” in the Nordics earlier this year – now, after a successful beta period of testing / listening / tweaking, “my Xperia” is launching globally to 2012/3 Xperia devices over the next few weeks*.
To quickly recap, “my Xperia” is Sony’s remote security app that’ll locate and protect your Xperia smartphone (& personal data) should it ever be misplaced. We recognised that your smartphone is equally important as your wallet or keys (some might argue *more*), but also just as easily lost…
It’s really simple – you activate the app in your phone’s settings and use Google ID to sign in to myxperia.sonymobile.com to access the central interface.
From here, you have access to a number of remote functions:
- Sound an alert to get someone’s attention –it’ll also override silent mode and wake the display
- Map location via myxperia.sonymobile.com
- Lock the phone to keep info private, and ping a message with contact details or…
- Erase both internal and external SD card info / data if required
