    I uninstalled every one of these types of programs months ago. They aren't worth anything free.

    wave secure is the best security program out on the market right now IMO. And SSH u obviously have no idea of how useful this app is. I downloaded it when they were still in beta so i got a free lifetime membership with them. The remote lock feature is great, works flawlessly, remote wipe is great. GPS locating is accurate within 5 meters for me. This program is invaluable for when you do eventually loose your phone, an average joe wont know how to reset the phone, and by then you can get to a comp and lock the phone down and do a data wipe if you have to. Their website ineterface is great and especially easy to use on a mobile device..i dont know what people can be complaining about.

    Oh and BTW you can return any app within 24hrs for a full refund

    LOL!! You only like it because you got it for free.. I like free stuff too! If you lost your phone you lost it, PERIOD! There's many way to get through Wave Secure, so don't tell me I don't now how useful it is. If they give me a free subscription I will love it too. But in reality it is a waste of money... You know it! :)

    You do know that even if you do a factory reset, you can download ANY app that you've paid for from the Market over and over again to infinity, right? If not, you fail. Apps and download history etc.. are SAVED WITH YOUR GOOGLE ACCOUNT.

    It also doesn't do any good if the battery is removed. :icon_rolleyes:

    No solution is going to cover ever possibility. With any type of security, whether it's your smartphone, home, car, whatever, you need to layer security for effectiveness.

    Sure you can. Any app can be refunded in the first 24 hours. Only one time though. Subsequent purchases are nonrefundable.

    It, as with any location-aware app, is as accurate as it can be. If it's not accurate then it can't get a GPS fix for whatever reason (GPS off, other issue, etc) and you need to address the reason. It's not the app.

    The point he is trying to make is not that the app needs to be reinstalled when it is reset. Rather, all a person has to do is perform a factory reset after they find/steal your phone to make all the "protections" offered with Wave Security totally erased and totally ineffective.

    I could see it being helpful if you "misplace" your phone to be able to know where you left it. But it isn't going help you if someone steals your phone.

    Just my opinion.

    I do 5 maybe 6 a week, still no problems with the app.
    It does as advertised.

    You could use Lookout Mobile Security which is FREE and in the Market for download. Has more than 250,000 downloads and a 4.5/5 star rating. Most of the comments are very positive about this application.

    WaveSecure Mobile Security is FREE during its 7-day trial if you didn't already have it when it was in testing. It doesn't have as many downloads or nearly as many ratings as Lookout Mobile Security but this is a FREE TRIAL. If you don't like it you can always uninstall it and find something more suitable to you.

    Mobile Defense isn't a Beta program but it is currently closed down and in Closed Beta while they prepare for a new launch of their product. It is a great program and works really well but unless you had already downloaded it you will not be able to register the application. People who already have it will experience no hiccups in their normal routine.

    I don't think the op bothered to read the wavesecure website which addressed all of his [non]issues. But I got mine free for life so what do I know
