by Lynnette Nolan | Jan 03, 2013

We’re back from the holidays with a fun new tip for you! From articles to customer reviews, we've seen so much positive feedback about our mobile app and we want to make sure all our blog readers know how cool and handy this free app is!

If you’re an Android user who isn't already backing up with Carbonite Mobile, wait no longer! Our mobile team is always working on new features to make sure our users get the best experience. So in addition to backing up full resolution photos and videos, sounding a ringer, locking a lost device and even destroying your personal data and resetting the phone to factory defaults, we've added a new way to protect your smartphone!

No matter what happens to your device, your phone’s photos and videos are safe in the cloud when they’re backed up with Carbonite Mobile. But we know that there’s nothing more frustrating than trying to find a lost cell phone! So we've launched Capture, a new tool within the app to help you keep tabs on the whereabouts of your phone! Now, Android users can remotely activate their smartphone’s camera to take photos of a lost phone’s location – or a stolen phone’s thief!

Our Android app was designed to make your life easier by keeping your data and devices safe!
