Sprint Total Equipment Protection App offers remote lock/wipe for Android and BlackBerry smartphones
Smartphone Lost? You can now locate it, lock it, clear it and restore it with new protection app from Sprint. Sprint customers needing to track down a lost device and protect their personal information can do so now with the launch of a new application called Total Equipment Protection App by Sprint.

Sprint Total Equipment Protection App Features
+ Locate lost device by sounding an alarm on the smartphone even if in silent mode, doing a real time locate via GPS technology, or viewing the smartphone’s location history on a map via a Web Interface
+ Remotely lock their smartphone
+ Erase contacts in the address book on a lost smartphone
+ Backup, manage and restore contacts.

The Protection App is included at no additional charge as a benefit of Total Equipment Protection plan, which is $7 per month, per line of service. It is available to customers with phones using BlackBerry and Android mobile platforms. TEP customers download and install the user-friendly application at www.sprint.com/protection. Privacy protection is included with the Protection App. Each time the smartphone’s location is requested by the Web interface, an SMS text message is sent to the smartphone notifying it has been located.

In addition to purchasing TEP coverage, customers have several other steps to help customers protect their information:
+ Pass codes – Sprint customers should always use pass codes to lock their phones and make it harder for the phone to be accessible if lost.
+ Protect voice mail – Use the “pass code feature” to retrieve voicemails rather than opting to skip it in order to maintain the highest level of security. Without it, anyone with access to the device can connect to the voicemail.
+ Contact Sprint – Call Sprint’s Customer Care department immediately to deactivate the phone if it is believed to be lost, stolen or accessed without authorization.
