WaveSecure is an intelligent app designed to protect your phone in case it gets lost or stolen.

There are a number of very useful things WaveSecure can do to ensure that losing your phone doesn't cause you lots of inconvenience. Not only can it protect the data on your device, it can even help you find out where your phone is and recover it!

WaveSecure includes a Backup feature that stores all of your contacts and personal information from your phone on a secure online server, so this can all be retrieved instantly if your phone goes missing. Whenever you like you can log into your WaveSecure account and restore personal information to your device.

Thanks to WaveSecure you don't need to worry about thieves using your phone. If a new SIM card is inserted into your handset, WaveSecure will instantly lock it, rendering it useless to the thief. You can even set a customized message to appear on screen when the thief tries to use it.

The app can also send an SMS alert to a buddy's mobile number saying that the SIM has been changed. WaveSecure can even pinpoint the whereabouts of your stolen mobile, tracking the current location and displaying it on a map.

Finally, if all else fails and you don't recover your phone, you can use WaveSecure to delete all of the data on your phone remotely. The application can even wipe the contents of your memory card.

The WaveSecure user interface is very easy to use, and the step-by-step setup wizard makes it easy to get up and running.

The one doubt we had about WaveSecure was over the strength of the password needed to access all the features. It's only a six-digit password, which means it could be relatively easy for someone to guess. If someone gained access to your account it would allow them to see exactly where you are, view all your contacts, lock your phone, or delete all your data. So make sure you don't use an easily guessable code, like your date of birth, or part of your phone number.

Security paranoia aside, WaveSecure is an excellent mobile security application that will save a lot of headache next time your phone gets lost or has been stolen.
