News Release


AUCKLAND, NZ . – 31 May 2020 - Sprite SoftwareLtd. today announced the launch of Sprite Mobile Swipe 1.0, their newest content protection application for all Windows Mobile 5 and Windows Mobile 6 phones.

Sprite Mobile Swipe protects confidential information on mobile devices from unauthorized access in the event of phone loss or theft.

Today’s advanced phones are so much more than just communications device. They are address books, organizers, email clients, photo stores, and even tools to edit or view documents and presentations. The recent high profile incidents of privacy breaches associated with phones which were lost or stolen or even just passed on without being adequately cleared down have highlighted the need for a solution such as Mobile Swipe.

The software works on any Windows Mobile phone and once installed, hides away in the background until activated when required. If a phone is lost, owners just need to send an SMS messge to their phone from a paired phone to lock down the phone so that a password is required to access the data. For additional peace of mind a wipe command can be sent which clears the entire contents of their phone – including memory cards. This can be used to decommision phones before passing them to friends or colleagues. If a phone is stolen, and the thief replaces the SIM card, Sprite Mobile Swipe detects this and informs the owner via a SMS message to the previously partnered phone so that the phone can be locked or wiped. Another option is to remotely query the phone for recent call activity as this may help track down the phone.

Sprite Mobile Swipe is packaged in a single Windows Mobile cross-platform installer which removes the potential confusion that new customers face when trying to determine whether they have a Smartphone, or Pocket PC for Windows Mobile 5, or a Standard, Classic, or Professional device for Windows Mobile 6.


Sprite Mobile Swipe will be available from June 2007 and has a MSRP of $14.95 USD.
