No root required to auto wipe your device!

Android Device policy manager. New device policy management APIs allow developers to write "device administrator" applications that can control security features of the device, such as the minimum password strength, data wipe, and so on.

Have no idea if it actually worked I set this app up the first day I bought my dell 5. Now, 3 months later, I lost my phone in a cab seat. I tried to send the wipe sms command, but I have no idea whether it worked or not. Some kind of feedback (email?) when the wiping is carried out would be helpful.

SD card wipe doesn't securely erase data. Please make this more obvious in the docs. Otherwise much better than many bloated commercial security apps.

Does what it says it will do. Accidentally swapped the SIM in my phone to a prepaid one without disarming Autowipe. Oops. Wiped my phone just like it said it would!

Better than Lookout and Seekdroid

A great app, having the right features I use it on my NexusOne from Froyo through Gingerbread. However, this app is apparently not compatible with my Motorola Xoom running Honeycomb 3.1. Such a pity!

Great product and works well with my security layers. Nice complimentary tool with corporate compliance.

by Udo the 5/8/2011

Works great with Password wipe I had to reset my phone to send it back to the seller, couldn't access system settings to do factory reset. This app solved the prob! Entered screen password 5x wrong, phone turned off. After turning on it was factory reset, everything wiped!

Works for Galaxy tab. I had to do a manual factory wipe first though. Then it worked for both the SMS and password entry. Good job!

by Tyler the 3/23/2011

Works, Mostly Will not work if the SMS comes from a website. Also, not smart enough to unmount the SD card if its being used over USB. Still looking for a better alternative.
