    Instead of use of GPS only, why not also by network (cell towers) and WPS (Wi-Fi networks)?

    • Allow unstallationof specified apps

      I use an app on my phone that stores all of my passwords. Even though that app is password protected, it would be nice to be able to tell WaveSecure to uninstall the app during the wipe cycle.

        • Delay autolock on android

          Sometimes wavesecure locks the phone BEFORE we can enter the sim pin code. It locks even if the sim card was not changed but detect it the have been changed. This could be due to a slow phone or a lot of apps to lauch on startup. It would be good to be able to configure a delay before activating the autolock feature to avoid this.

            The lock is only supposed to kick in after you enter your SIM PIN. However, there may be some instances where the lock kicks in early.

            We were of the opinion that it is better to lock earlier than lock later (and hence give a malicious user a chance to view your data/uninstall WS)

          • Allow application to run in stealth mode

            Any chance of this app operating in stealth mode on android?

            If for example, the phone is stolen. I may not want to alert the end user to the fact that I have the capability to lock/track it.

            I may just want to monitor their whereabouts first, before initiating any action.

            However, if the app is visible, then it is most likely that the person who has stolen the phone will know of it, and then try and uninstall it. Ok even if they can't uninstall, once they know it's installed on the phone, then they might just turn the…

            • Allow the user to set a custom alarm sound

              The current default alarm sound could cause a panic in the wrong situation. I think it would be better if I could use my own sound; for example, a recording that says "This phone is stolen property.". It would be nice to be able to record and/or upload an mp3 on the wavesecure website.

                • Keep settings on sd card and load them on boot

                  i am one of many users that keep my apps installed on my sd card in android and if/when my phone is wiped all the apps on the sd card are reinstalled before booting up. i would like to see this app save settings(PIN, SIM) to the sd card and read those settings on every boot. would just have to change a setting to wait for the launcher to start and while launcher is starting just have this app read the settings and apply them, that way it is a little harder to uninstall the app and my phone is…

                  • Have a boot up lock

                    There are people who might want to return the phone or people who are intimidated by the lock and might return it.
                    The boot up lock should come in before anything else loads like a bios lock. This should have the current user's info & alternate contact details to make the phn returnable.
                    What happens if someone reboots into factory settings?

                      Doing it like a BIOS is near impossible on commercial phones since apps don’t have access to that kind of functionality.

                      However, what we CAN do is to have the phone lock when it starts up. Currently we only have the option to automatically lock when the SIM is changed. We could add this as a setting. Pls vote it up if you think it should be implemented.

                    • Hide WaveSecure, change its app name and icon

                      I'm experimenting with another and similar security application called Mobile Defense http://www.mobiledefense.com/.
                      One good feature which Mobile Defense has but Wave Secure lacks is that after you install Mobile Defense and reboot your phone, application is no more visible. Even if you go to settings and choose "Manage Applications" - it is not there! So, if a phone is stolen, a thief cannot know that he is tracked.
                      On the other side, it means that Mobile Defense could only be operated from a computer, while Wave Secure could be used on a phone to initiate backup, etc.

                      • Autolock after inactivity for user-specified time period.

                        Let the user specify a time period of inactivity after which WaveSecure locks the phone which can be unlocked with the pin.

                          I tried using your application, but first I have to send a confirmation SMS message. I can't do that as I don't have SMS messaging on my phone. Can I still use the program, even maybe with reduced features?

                            • The software refers to a SIM Card - but here in US, Verizon & Sprint phones do not have SIM cards.

                              Since there are millions of US Verizon and Sprnt customers, who's phones do not have SIM cards - maybe ask US customers if they are on those carriers - and if they are - alter message referring to SIM cards - or at least display a warning.

                                Agreed. However, there’s a lot of messaging and concepts in the product that revolves around the concept of a SIM card. We’ll look at how we can change that.

                                Would it be possible to put an option to disallow contacts and other items to be backed up to a server? This is important for companies who have policies of not storing confidential data like contacts on outside servers.
