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.
