Sprite Software testing Mobile Swipe security application for Windows Mobile
Have you ever thought about how much personal information and data is on your mobile phone? Today’s advanced phones are so much more than just a communications device and New Zealand-based Sprite Software is targeting the security concious users and organisations with its new software, Sprite Mobile Swipe.

Currently under beta testing, Sprite Mobile Swipe works on any Windows Mobile 5.0 Pocket PC or Windows Mobile 5.0 Smartphone, and once installed, hides away in the background until activated by the device's owner.

The software cannot be uninstalled without a user selected password. If the device is ever lost, simply send a SMS from a previously specified “partner” phone and you can have the device locked. You can also go one step further, and send a “wipe” text message that will erase the entire contents of the phone, including everything on the memory card.

If, on the other hand, your phone is stolen, and the thief changes the SIM card, you will automatically get a SMS on the designated partner phone so the user will know the new number. You can also find out the recent call activity to help track your phone down.

It is expected that Sprite Mobile Swipe will be launched in April 2007. Sprite Mobile Swipe only supports Windows Mobile 5.0 devices, and the SIM card monitoring is only available with GSM phones.

The company has developed other security and deployment software for Windows Mobile, including Sprite Backup and Sprite Clone.
