Available in :

Description provided by the Developer

WaveSecure is an award-winning security service that protects your phone, data and privacy in the event of loss.

With WaveSecure, you never have to worry about losing your phone again!

+ Track and locate your phone
When a new SIM card is inserted, your buddy will get a SMS alert so you can contact the person who has found or stolen your device. You can also track the location of your phone and even plot them out on a map.

+ Lock and secure your mobile
Automatically lock your phone once a SIM change is detected to prevent unauthorized use and to make the phone worthless to the thief. You can also sound an alarm remotely to warn him.

+ Backup and restore data
Back up data straight from your phone or remotely on the web. Important SMS, contacts and call logs can be stored securely online. You can also restore your data wirelessly.

+ Wipe your data
Unable to recover your lost phone? Protect your privacy by triggering a remote wipe to delete all private data on your phone. Data on removable media can be deleted, too.

For many of us, our mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets do more than just entertain us with games such as Angry Birds and Paper Toss. We get on Facebook and Twitter for our social interaction. We communicate over Skype or eBuddy. We make payments through PayPal and even do our mobile banking.

We keep many of the important details of our lives on our mobile devices, yet we don’t always think about the importance of mobile security. But if our devices are lost or stolen, we need to back up and secure our personal data and media like photos and videos.

Same boat, lifetime? So it is lifetime, I must be reincarnated since I upgraded my phone, don't bother if you plan on upgrading any time in the future

by A Google User the 1/25/2013

Lifetime subscription Great app, bad customer support. Their free lifetime subscription that was advertised when they first released the app wasn't related to my lifetime, but only to the lifetime of my phone. In my opinion that is false advertising, but hey, that is just me. -> Uninstalled and looking for decent replacement!

by A Google User the 1/6/2013

worst experience ever, still unresolved This product has reduced my device to paperweight status 3 times since installing and upgrading to full license. My latest issue is unresolved and i will not be a return customer. While troubleshooting the app, I was instructed by a customer service agent to reset my password and disable my firewall on my personal PC so that the agent could remote connect into my PC to download the right software. After refusing to allow the agent to access my PC, the rep instructed me to login to my PC security software account and reset the password. i requested to speak to a manager and was transferred to a supervisor who advised me that i did NOT have a paid version and that i was subscribed to the tablet, not phone addition. i have paid $50+ twice now. 3 hours later, my entire account was deactivated, the app was already uninstalled from my phone and, the supervisor's only resolution was for me to login ( to my already deleted account ) and change my PIN.. When i asked for a manager or his superior the supervisor responded: "they are all in a meeting". When i asked to be transferred to a corporate liaison, i was told, the only form of communication he could give was a mailing address.

Downhill since being bought by McAfee App function and service reliability has been going downhill since McAfee took over. Stopped honoring previous purchases, effectively taking your money. Better, more reliable, cheaper apps now exist. Avoid.

by A Google User the 1/2/2013

cheater! its totally sucks, downgraded my free life subscription to trial! we made the app to what it is, and now you take away our rewarded effort!

by A Google User the 12/31/2012

Gap Very nice application. Helped me in remote locking and then finding my lost mobile in play ground.

by A Google User the 12/31/2012

Disappointed to see "lifetime" subscription gone Another beta user here, given a lifetime subscription back when this app was first released (with no association to McAfee). I've used the same subscription on 3 phones in the last few years. After switching phone again (Nexus 4), I'm told that my previous lifetime subscription was only valid for my first device -- simply false information; a device can last a lifetime can it?! From 5 star to 1 star in one update! Time to uninstall and forget about this, I guess.

Airplane Mode Locks my DNA Evetytime I go I to Airplane mode, app locks my phone for SIM removal. Very annoying. No support at all.

by A Google User the 12/21/2012

User Doesnt not do what it said. Useless.

by A Google User the 12/19/2012

Unable to verify my number I'm unable to verify my number. Why is this happening? It says verification failed please try again later. The same thing happens again and again
