Synchronica has developed new technology that could combat the rise of mobile phone thefts across the UK. According to the latest figures from the Met 10,000 mobile phones are stolen every month.

The management software enables the user to lock and wipe data from a mobile phone that has been stolen. The user can also turn on the Scream Feature which causes an annoying high pitched wail to be emitted from the handset.

“According to industry sources, it takes on average only 30 seconds for someone to notice that their phone is missing, compared to an hour for a wallet or purse,” said Carsten Brinkschulte, Synchronica`s chief executive.

“Using our service, crime victims can be reassured that their information is immediately removed from the stolen phone, along with the satisfaction of annoying the thief with a screaming handset.”
