McAfee WaveSecure review

Worried about losing your Android smartphone? WaveSecure promises to help you recover it should it ever leave your side. Find out how well it works in our review.

WaveSecure allows you to configure your Android phone so in the event of loss or theft you can track down your phone using a web browser, remote lock the device or even wipe it completely.

You can even download additional plug-ins which allows you to lock the phone if WaveSecure is ever uninstalled. Installation was pretty easy and once we had verified our sim all we needed to do was setup a buddy contact, so in the event of theft they would be alerted via text.

The core interface was simple to use and lush in appearance, and we discovered that there’s more to WaveSecure than meets the eyes, as we could also schedule backups of our phone’s SMS messages, contacts, phone logs and media. Accessing the media, backing up data (not images) or restoring can be done remotely via their secure website.

The web interface also allows you to send lock commands to the phone or we could use a spare phone and send SMS commands to lock our main phone, locate it or sound an alarm! (enough to startle the life out of you!). All of which ran smoothly.
