Sony kicked off a pilot on Thursday for a remote security service called “my Xperia.” The goal, says Sony, is to help Xperia smartphone owners locate and protect their device should it become lost or stolen.
It’s initially beta launching in the Nordics with a phased rollout, Sony says. A global release is planned for later this spring.
“When the unpredictable happens,” explains Marcin Zielinski, Sony Experience Planner, “‘my Xperia’ helps you locate your misplaced Sony smartphone and protect your personal data.”
We recognize that your Sony Xperia smartphone is equally as important as other valuables like wallets and keys, but it’s also just as easily misplaced.
Zielinski says “my Xperia” is designed to give users piece of mind in the stressful situations commonly observed when a smartphone turns up missing in action.
So how does it work?
“It’s really simple,” Zielinski says. “You activate the app in your phone’s settings and use Google ID to sign in to myxperia.sonymobile.com to access the central interface. From here, you’ll be able to control a number of remote functions.”
