BuddyGuard let us know that they have released their Beta 5 of their app. BuddyGuard allows you to remotely secure and wipe your device in the event of theft or loss.

The app feature set includes:

  • ALERT: Helps you find your misplaced phone by playing a loud tone, even if the phone is in silent or vibrate-only mode. In addition, it secures your phone by locking it and displaying your contact information.
  • LOCK: Displays a screen contacting your contact information and locks your phone. BuddyGuard Will keep your BlackBerry locked until you enter your password, even if your phone is rebooted.
  • LOCATE: Finds your BlackBerry using it’s GPS and sends you a link to the mapped location of your device.
  • LIST: Sends you a listing of the data on your BlackBerry, which allows you verify what a Wipe will remove without actually deleting your data.
  • WIPE: Remotely wipes your personal data from your BlackBerry, preventing unauthorized persons from accessing it. Removes Calendar, Contacts, Emails, Phone Logs, Memos, Tasks and Files on your SD Card and in Device Memory.
