Back in February, we brought you word of Sony’s beta test for its new ‘my Xperia’ app, a service which allows you to locate a lost Xperia smartphone.
Initially, only available in select Nordic regions, my Xperia is set to come out of beta and launch globally for Xperia handsets manufactured 2012 or later, in the coming weeks.
my Xperia is designed to help users locate lost Xperia devices, including the ability to display its position on a map, sound an alert, and even erase data and lock your device. You can activate any one of these features by logging into my Xperias web portal at myxperia.sonymobile.com. Other options include sending you an email when there’s a GPS fix on your device (if one is not found right away), or resetting your current PIN to something new.
This service is nothing new for smartphone users, however, as iPhone has its Find my iPhone service and Samsung has its own Find my phone, wguke a plethora of third-party mobile security and location apps, like Cerberus, are available as alternatives from the App stores.
Thanks, Fady, for the tip!
