myXperia remote security service rolling out globally

myXperia remote security service rolling out globallyLosing your phone or having it stolen must rank among the most depressing things that can happen to a man (or indeed lady) in this here 21st century – certainly as far as material possessions go, at least.

With that in mind, Sony is now rolling out its myXperia remote security service across the globe, after a successful period of Nordic testing with the listening and the tweaking and what have you.

Getting myXperia up and running is dead simple. Just install the app on your 2012/13 Sony Xperia phone and log into (using your Google credentials) to access the central interface.

From there, you can do all sorts of things to your Sony Xperia mobile – should the unthinkable happen.

For examps, you can sound an alert (neatly overriding silent mode), track the phone’s location on the myXperia map, lock the phone, or ping a message along the lines of: “I don’t know who you are, but I will find you, and I will kill you.”

If you’re super paranoid about people accessing your personal data (hey, we’ve all had a cheeky nudie on our phone at one time or another), you can also remotely erase the internal and external memory.

And that’s myXperia, rolling out globally, though Sony adds: “timing and availability may vary by model, market & carrier”. Any sign in the UK, Xperia dudes?

Mutterings would suggest that it's bundled in with the Xperia Z 4.2.2 update, which rolled out to Voda and 3 this week, but oddly not to unbranded handsets...
