UniverCell unveils Cell Safe for mobiles


The application called Cell Safe allows any GPS phone to back up contact information, wipe out the data in the event of the phone being lost, track down the person who has stolen the mobile and remotely lock the phone to make it unusable.

“A few features of the application are already available in the market as ‘anti-theft’ solutions,” said Vice President Ramesh Bharat, observing none of them are part of a single, comprehensive application like Cell Safe.

Available at the price range of Rs 149 to Rs 249 from 220 UniverCell stores, Cell Safe works with about 80 per cent of all GSM phones, the company claimed. Once installed, it automatically transfers contact details to the server for back up as and when it is updated. There are 43 stores in Karnataka and 20 in Bangalore.

While registering the customer is asked to provide nominee number which would be used to wipe out all personal information stored in the mobile (by simple SMS) once the phone is found missing, said Fifth C Solutions CEO Krishna Mohan, who has developed the application.

The backed-up data can be accessed through the website www.cellr.in from where the password-protected data can be downloaded into desktops and laptops. The ‘anti-theft’ feature, however, can be used only on certain high-end phones.
