SmrtGuard

It's been a while since we've seen a major update to the popular mobile security application. The folks over at SmrtGuard recently rolled out version 5.25 of their free and pro version for BlackBerry users. This new version comes with GUI enhancements, bug fixes, and some new features as well. If you're still deciding between SmrtGuard and BlackBerry Protect as a mobile backup and security solution then check out this post on the differences between the two.

New Features:

  • Added support for backup multiple contact list (OS 5.0 and higher)
  • Added Remote screen capture and camera capture into Anti-theft feature
  • Fixed a critical restore bug for user migrating from Android to BB
  • Other GUI improvements

Additional improvements:

  • Added My Account Screen within the application
  • Improved SmrtGuard for BlackBerry running OS 6
  • Updated with new and secure way to authenticate with Twitter (for Personal Guardian feature)
  • Fixed issues with Call Blocker - Call Blocker will block without any short burst of ringtone and blocked calls will NOT goto voicemail
  • Fixed minor issue with Email SPAM Blocker
  • Added email notification for Audio Ping and Remote Lock and also record action as location history
  • Added Application Notification on Home Screen if SmrtGuard finds any issue with backup and/or spyware scan
  • Added GPS support (if available and enabled) to Personal Guardian along with the default network triangulation to determine location
  • Added Twitter intergration with Personal Guardian. When Personal Guardian is triggered, you will have the option to send a post to your Twitter account with location links
  • SimCard Guardian supports CDMA devices with SIMCards

SmrtGuard is available in two versions: a free one with basic features and a pro version which you can try for free for 30 days. It just so happens that a lifetime subscription to SmrtGuard Pro is the CrackBerry Deal of the Day for today, July 29th -- it is on sale for 50% off.

SmrtGuard Updated to Version 5.25 - Brings new features and bug fixes

Though it's good for the app to be updated I am not very fond of the new version - I have lost the capability to audio ping and remote locate :( The website comes with a pop-up about me needing to upgrade to Pro version before the services are available.

Remote Wipe of Encrypted Data Possible? -

Do either of these applications allow you to wipe your device remotely if the data on your Blackberry is encrypted?

It is my understanding that this is not possible with BB Protect but not sure now that it's been updated.
