Safeguarding your smartphone. Absolute LoJack.

Boot Camp feature for Friday, February 28, 2014

Safeguarding your smartphone.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    Absolute Software, which has been using the LoJack brand for its solutions to safeguard computers from theft, now is offering protection for the latest Samsung smartphones.   VP Mark Grace…

“The end user can lock the device…can even put a message on the device saying I’ve lost this device or contact me in a good Samaritan scenario.  And then it has a delete function where an end user can delete one file or all the files on a particular device to ensure that personal documents don’t fall into the wrong hands.  And then finally we’re the only company out there that has a certified theft recovery team that you can select and put into action.”

Absolute LoJack, which can’t be erased,  is available on Samsung Galaxy phones and newer tablets…and there’s more to come.   Pricing starts at about 15 dollars a year.  You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
