CellSniper is an award winning mobile security application developed by NSS, which protects your privacy and prevents misuse of data in lost handsets.
What does CellSniper do?
CellSniper automatically locks the handset on restart. The handset can be unlocked by a password known only to the owner. The handset may also be locked remotely by sending the CellSniper password in a particular format via SMS to the phone.
CellSniper traces any new number that might be used on your handset. When a new SIM card is installed, alert messages are sent to predefined numbers entered by you, notifying them that your handset is in use with a new number. The alert message will also recover your IMEI number and location information in the form of latitude and longitude.
CellSniper can remotely delete all personal information on the phone via SMS using a WIPE string that you control. Even if the handset is operating on a new number, you only need to send the WIPE string in a message to the new number. The WIPE string is configured by the owner and can be edited or changed when required.
Remote Call Back
Remote call back feature enables the user to hear or spy on the conversation of the person who has stolen the phone. This can be achieved by sending a normal SMS to the number received through the Alert message. When the user sends a call back SMS to the target phone, the mobile would automatically call back from which the remote call back message came from.
Synchronized Data Backup Solution
Sync option allows easy access to over-the-air mobile data backup and restores service (SyncML).
Password Protected Uninstall
To uninstall, the user has to enter the application login password; if the password is incorrect then the phone would be locked and the alerts would go to the user friends. This would restrict from uninstalling the application by the unauthorized person.
User can send a SMS command from any phone to trigger or disable the alarm/siren. This is useful in the case where a user misplaced or lost his phone; he can remotely trigger the alarm and locate the phone by the siren sound. It can also annoy the thief as the alarm cannot be turned off without a valid application access password.
