An Android app developed by ConnectXcite Inc., a software solutions company based out of Massachusetts, USA. Peace of Mind is a data security application. This app helps the user of a mobile phone to delete data from his phone when it is lost or stolen. The user can delete data remotely simply by sending a text message to the lost mobile number.
The user has to enter a unique password during the app installation. This password is to be used when the phone is lost. To delete all the data on the phone, the user would need to send a text message, containing a unique string “peace of mind” or “delete all my data’ followed by the password he had set, to the lost mobile number. The erase action would be triggered without anyone’s knowledge.
If someone attempts to change the SIM of the lost or stolen mobile phone, the phone would ask for the password. Three wrong attempts would lead to all data on the phone being erased without giving any warning.
Peace of Mind is a very simple to use app, it does not require a user to log into a web interface or go through complicated control processes before allowing the user to erase the data.
It just insures peace of mind :)
