Smart phone data rescue
TrackItBack, a provider of global lost and found recovery solutions, has launched TrackItBackUP a mobile software solution for smart phones that lets smart device users backup their critical data to a secure server using over-the-air (OTA) technology. TrackItBackUP lets smart phone users manually or automatically back up the valuable data from their smart device without using a computer. All data is sent over-the-air through their cell phone data connection and backed-up onto TrackItBack’s secure servers. When needed, TrackItBackUP users can restore some or all of their data from any of their previous backups. When a TrackItBackUP enabled smart phone is lost, stolen or goes missing, the owner of the device can contact TrackItBack and the company will remotely lock their device so that it cannot be used. Or, all data can be wiped out so the user’s information cannot be exploited.
