Here comes BlackBerry Protect, an application that allows BlackBerry users to locate their phone in case of lost or missing. This app lets user to set a password, lock the phone or wipe the device data remotely. Other features of this app includes wireless backup and restore option including all contacts, bookmark and calendar for the BB device in case something goes wrong.
The backup option runs on an adhoc based network or it can be scheduled for regular backup operation. This app also provides option to restore data to a new phone.
However, this kind of application is already available for Apple’s iPhone but by launching this application by RIM for BB, it makes the BB data a little bit safer.
BlackBerry Protect is currently available to use only in Europe and can be downloaded from the BlackBerry App World for free.
