Message Text: After a six-month beta testing period, Sony has made available its remote security service "my Xperia" globally to 2012/3 Xperia devices.

"my Xperia" is Sony's remote security app that will locate and protect your Xperia smartphone (& personal data) should it ever be misplaced. With my Xperia you can locate your device with a sound alert or display its position on a map. You can also erase data and/or lock your device if you lose it.





You activate the app in your phone's settings and use Google ID to sign in to myxperia.sonymobile.com to access the central interface. From here, you have access to a number of remote functions:

- Sound an alert to get someone's attention - it'll also override silent mode and wake the display
- Map location via myxperia.sonymobile.com
- Lock the phone to keep info private, and ping a message with contact details
- Erase both internal and external SD card info / data if required

The app is Sony's answer to the three-year old Apple's 'Find my iPhone' device location service. There's still no OS-level location service in Android.
