How to prevent Mobile Theft?

In the recent issue of Digital Times (Straits Times Digital Supplement), they featured some local Entrepreneurs who made it BIG!

One of them started this company called Bak2U.

What makes this company intriguing to me, is that they have produced this anti-theft software for your handphone.

(For those readers, who are always losing your handphones, this software might greatly interest you)

How does this software work?

Users just need to download a software into your hp, and upon setting up, you will be asked to key in the phone number of a loved one.

  • When you lose your hp, and the potential thief decides to keep the phone, he/she will need to insert in his own SIM card to use the phone.
  • The moment a foreign SIM card is inserted into the HP, a notification with the thief’s IMEI no and HP no, will be sent to your loved one.
  • Your loved one can follow-up on these details, by alerting the police or confronting the thief himself/herself.

I think the program is really cool, especially when one has a habit of regularly losing his/her phone.

If you are interested in the program, you can buy it at US$19.90, from the BAK2U website.

At press time, I have not tried the program yet, but as it is recommended by The Straits Times – I think it comes from a highly reliable source.
