My Xperia

Sony mobile security service going global 'over the next few weeks'

Following a limited beta rollout in Nordic countries earlier in the year, Sony's "My Xperia" security service for smartphones has begun rolling out globally. After listening to user feedback, Sony has finalized the service, and expects to enable it for 2012 and 2013 Xperia devices around the world "over the next few weeks."

My Xperia lets Sony phone owners locate and secure their devices in the event they're lost or stolen, using a web-based interface. From here, they can sound an alarm, even if the phone's set to silent mode, lock it to keep private information secured, or wipe the phone entirely.

The web interface is live now at myxperia.sonymobile.com.

Sony 'My Xperia' service rolling out worldwide

The remote location/wipe services need to be built in to the Android base.

"Nordic countries". Apparently, Canada is not nordic. Perhaps they mean Scandinavia ? Unless.... I hope it doesn't require JellyBean 4.2.2... I bought a phone with 4.2.1, and here, in Eastern Canuckistan, home of the 3 dismal operators that are Bell, Rogers and Videotron, we never get software updates... If it's not available on Play store, we are just cr*p out of luck.

I hope to get this service though. I had this type of service with my last phone, a Motorola, and it helps you sleep at night. I lost my phone once, and was grateful for this service. I did not have to wipe my phone, as the fellow who found it saw the "Call if found" note on the back of the phone. (Avery sticker, with better half's phone number, coated with transparent nail polish re-forcer, to make it water and wear resistant).

+1 for Sony.

I have installed it months ago! And friends, I am not in Scandinavia, I am in Bolivia. Congrats Sony, great app!
