Deleting phone numbers only removes some of the data your phone may have. Many phones can store data like phone logs, emails, application data, images voice recording and more so if you think you’ve gotten rid of all the data your old phone has you may be wrong. If your information is stored on a phone with a sim card, all you need to do is remove the sim card and you’re done. Always try to overwrite or reformate data on your phone before you get rid of it. Even if you erase the data it can still be recovered and phones are worse than PCs because of the different type of memory they have.

You should be able to find information in the manual that came with the cell phone on how to delete date or reformat it. Sometimes you may find the information you need by searching the manufacturer’s website. The same can’t be said for your service provider. They usually won’t be able to help but you can request that your contact information be deleted from their system if you plan to not use their service any longer.

You can also try a mobile data eraser which this may delete or reformat you’re phone depending on whether the manufacture has included the reformatting option. Deleting data remotely is possible from some services. It is mainly used for protecting stolen phones. Some are set up to delete data if the passwords is wrong too many times or if a message is sent to the phone.

Sometimes you may not be able to delete or reformate the data on your phone. So you may want to try to trick it by uploading fake data and it might overwrite your existing data this will only allow useless data to be taken from that phone and always remove your SIM card if you have one. Phones, as they become more and more like computers, will have to deal with higher risks of security.

 Now you can email, surf the web, download video, download applications. All of these things are actually making your phone into a portable computer. This is convenient but it also adds to the possibility of security risks because you have so much access to the internet in so many different ways.

So how does this kind of mobile security really work? Well, they create an application which monitors and records all activity done on any cell you own. It is usually stored on a server somewhere and the software gives you total access to that server.

It’s all done over the internet so all you need to do is install the software on your computer and you can access the server from any computer, anywhere. There is nothing to install on the phone itself, software is only installed on your computer

What’s great about this is that the cell phone needs to have internet access, which is the most unsecure access for any mobile phone, to work. If you don’t have internet access on the phones you use it will not work.

Will they know their phone is being tracked? No, once the software is installed it’s completely undetectable and it will work on almost every smart phone made even blackberry models.

How many mobile phones can be tracked? One account can track as many phones as you want, so there no need for multiple accounts, even if there were 100 phones, one account is all you would need. That’s perfect for a business with multiple phones or your average household.

Who is this kind of service made for? Well if have suspicions about a spouse, a child or a workers, this is for you. If trust is a problem, it’s for you. If you want to keep tabs on your child, because of safety concerns, it’s perfect or if you have questions about a spouses whereabouts.

All of these may seem like you’re just trying to spy on someone but knowing they were bout of children, whether your spouse if faithful or if an employee is trying to get over on you are all alginate concerns.

It depends on each person what reason they would have to use this type of mobile security but some of the most common uses are married and single people use it to find out if their spouses or fiances, parents use it to keep an eye on their children or on their old parents. Employers and company owners use it to protect their businesses.
