Sprite Mobile Swipe addresess privacy issues on Windows Mobile devices
Sprite Software Ltd. is launching Sprite Mobile Swipe 1.0, a content protection application for all Windows Mobile 5 and Windows Mobile 6 devices.

Sprite Mobile Swipe protects confidential information on mobile devices from unauthorised access in the event of phone loss or theft. The software works on any Windows Mobile PocketPC or Smartphone and once installed, hides away in the background until activated when required.

If a phone is lost, owners just need to send an SMS messge to their phone from a paired phone to lock down the phone so that a password is required to access the data. For additional peace of mind a wipe command can be sent which clears the entire contents of their phone, including memory cards. This can be used to decommision phones before passing them to friends or colleagues. If a phone is stolen, and the thief replaces the SIM card, Sprite Mobile Swipe detects this and informs the owner via a SMS message to the previously partnered phone so that the phone can be locked or wiped.

Another option is to remotely query the phone for recent call activity as this may help track down the phone.

Sprite Mobile Swipe is packaged in a single Windows Mobile cross-platform installer which removes the potential confusion that new customers face when trying to determine whether they have a Smartphone, or Pocket PC for Windows Mobile 5, or a Standard, Classic, or Professional device for Windows Mobile 6.

The Sprite Software developer team is known for their mobile tools and for their participation in developing Ghost, a software for PC backup, later bought by Symantec.
