    stolen droid

    Well someone stole my friends droid... and he isnt too concerned about the phone since he was about to get a new one. But he was wondering, what can he do about all the information that was on his phone. He had it linked to his facebook, gmail, and he may have done some online shopping on it. since some of those sites remembers your account login and they store your cc info, is there anyway to delete it?

    He can get VZW to wipe it. He should have installed an app to allow him to do it. I now use Wavesecure so I can control my phone should it get stolen.

    Change passwords to any accounts he logged on to with the phone, Gmail Amazon Faceook etc.

    I totally agree with the above statement. He can also see his call logs online to challenge any calls, data, or texts being sent or used during the time he is without phone.

    My wife's Droid was stolen on a plane to Cali...we use latitude because we are new out here and don't know our way around. I used latitude to find my wife's phone. The guy was totally shocked when I showed up at his door explaining to him that I know my phone is in his house.

    Got my phone back and we are happy campers.

    It's too late for this now but for future reference this is what I use:

    EDIT: I just thought about it. You can install this now from the online market and you should be able to find your friends phone!! Or at least lock it down and mess with whoever stole it.

    I know there may be app for it but has anyone used latitude and friended them self to track their phone

    At least until the stolen phone turns off gps it might be trackable and even findable if lost and not stolen

    That would be pretty awesome if it actually works that way.

    Nothing at this point. Passwords and remote wipe solutions require proactive action.
