In 2013 the FCC reported that there were about 3.1 million smartphone thefts. Today nearly everyone owns at least one smart device, and many people tend to keep personal or business information on these same devices. If your device is lost the first reaction you might have is to attempt to use third-party software to locate or wipe the sensitive data from your device, but what happens when the connection to these services is lost? The Fail-Safe Erase application aims to provide you with the ability to wipe your device after its disconnected from reaching network services. By setting up a personalized password and a wipe timer, Fail-Safe Erase can ensure that if you can’t gain access to your device, remotely or physically, the data on it will be securely erased, hopefully before it falls into the wrong hands.
