Windows Phone is Getting Remote-Lock and Remote-Wipe

By Robert Sorokanich on at

Good news for Windows Phone users: Microsoft is bringing remote-lock and remote-wipe capabilities to WinPhone in a future software update. When it comes to you depends on your phone manufacturer and carrier, but this stuff is reducing thefts in other phones, so hopefully it'll be a good deterrent for WinPhoners too.
