An interesting story today in the Chicago Tribune might help you learn to protect yourself from luring eyes and thieves who try to take your cell phone or gain access. After a user fails to type the unlock passcode correctly three times, software applications can take a picture of the person and email it to you with their location. This could prove useful in the workplace where an employee suspects their employer is intruding in their personal space by attempting to look at their cell phone contents without authorization. Surely such an attempt by an employer to gain unauthorized access to an employee’s cell phone could lead to significant employment litigation.
Unfortunately, this software does little to help you if your cell phone has already been stolen without you having had the chance to install the software in advance. Forensicon does not endorse any specific product but some available include:
