Autowipe Saves Your Device’s Data So You Don’t Have To

Remember that remote wipe feature introduced in Android 2.2 Froyo that allows device administrators to remotely wipe lost or stolen devices? So do we! Unfortunately, not everyone notices immediately when their beloved device has gone missing. Luckily, XDA forum member vesperaNovus has an application geared at filling that void.

In the words of the developer:

If your device gets lost or stolen you can set up this application to automatically wipe the memory in the following conditions: failed passwords to unlock screen, SMS password received, subscriber ID changed (SIM card).

While this app itself is not new, first appearing on our forums back in July 2010; the developer has recently added a test mode, enabling users to test the application functionality without actually wiping their devices.

If you’re interested in keeping the data on your mobile device that much more secure, make sure to continue on to the original thread.
