When I actually sat down and through about it, losing a fully configured Android phone is actually a big deal as it provides ready access to all kinds of accounts, including ones Google account. This could potentially allow the thief to engage in all kinds of malicious behaviour, some of which could have major implications beyond the scope of the theft.
Luckily for me it seems that the thief did the usual thing: Dumped the sim card, wiped the phone and switched it off. It's probably had it's IMEI changed by now and been sold on to some oblivious punter, possibly some oblivious punter in another country.
Still, the potential for serious issue is making me have second thoughts about replacing the phone with anything capable of doing much more than calling.
My question is this: Are there any serious solutions out there for Android that secure against theft?
By serious I mean solutions that go beyond the laughably easy to defeat "Find My Phone" and "Remote Wipe" options provided at present. Presently I'm thinking along the lines of:
- Full encryption of phone contents
- Some kind of "Travel Safe" mode that would lock the phone down and trigger a full wipe of not unlocked correctly (Including wiping the phone on next boot if not unlocked before being switched off/running out of battery).
So, any ideas?"
In Tokyo District Court Wednesday, the former employee of a Japanese IT company wore a black suit, a wide smile, and pleaded not guilty to 10 charges brought against him. The Japan Times explained the string of threats were directed at “schools and kindergartens attended by the Emperor Akihito’s grandchildren,” as well as a Japan Airlines jet headed for New York. The plane had to stop midflight, costing the airline ¥9.75 million (about $93,000)."

I have to say I've not missed getting 20 new photos of my brother's cats posted everyday
You're right. It would be confusing for his page to let you know which cats were safe and which were not. I suspect in this situation it would be clearer to get a fb page for each cat.
You think? I'm torn between wondering if perhaps they have

Coming up this week on Border Security:

Immigration Officer 2: Right, so effectively endangering the safety and security of the nation?
Immigration Officer 1: Yes. That's right sir. What should we do with him.
Immigration Officer 2: Normal procedure. Plastic cuffs, scan him, put him on the next plane out.
Immigration Officer 1: Should we tase him first?
Immigration Officer 2: If you like. It has been a quiet morning, hasn't it? Yeah go for it.
Immigration Officer 1: Thankyou sir.
Underwater caves hold clues to how life formed on Earth millions of years ago, housing microbes that can survive in environments with very low amounts of oxygen and light. There are tens of thousands of underwater caves across the globe, but less than 5 percent have ever been explored."
