You can also ring your phone remotely. This is particularly useful for finding your phone if it is nearby.

Android: Android Device Manager

Here too we can erase the data remotely. But a more sophisticated application can render services as well. Cerberus AntitheftAnti-Theft is well known to those who travel a lot. You can take pictures at the same time without the "new" owner noticing. Read the mails or SMS and find the new data’s entered by the "borrower". Another advantage of this application: the user is instantly notified if a new SIM card is inserted into the device. Better, in case of reformatting it can be reinstalled automatically (with his account) to regain control of the phone.

On Android, a large number of third-party applications offer identical services, often more developed than the basic versions. Note, Samsung Dive, brand-specific or Lookout

Windows Phone: light but effective

Blackberry Protect

This is one of the oldest applications, not in the developed technology, but in the service provided to the user. Fully integrated in Blackberry 10, this new versionperforms the same functions as its competitors: locate, erase data, send a message ...
