    I have heard people here discussing an app that would allow you to remotely erase all of the data on the 650 in case you lost it or it was stolen.

    I would like to get this software, but I can't find it via searches. Please help. Thanks in advance.

    mSafe and Butler are two that jump to mind...there are others as well. Don't be afraid to search....

    Butler works really well, can send command from SMS or email, and can erase the Treo, SD card or both. Good luck.

    You can lock the device requiring a password to open with the built in security app.

    To wipe, as above msafe and Butler are the two apps most mentioned...however, some peeps have reported stability problems with Butler while other have had rock solid experiences.

    Scottymomo, the problem with Mantragroup is that they are not known for their prompt service. I gave up on them a long, long time ago. Promises made, promises not carried out. Ben

    Butler 3.61 appears to be very solid.

    I've been using Warden (from www.corsoft.com) for a couple of months. The program works very well and hasn't caused any problems on my T650.

    There are a lot of options, including remotely locking the Treo or remotely destroying data. You can vary the options between remote vs. manual lock. You can lock it down so that it can't receive phone calls or it can only receive calls from the owner. And, you can lock it but still call emergency contact numbers.

    Tech support is great and very responsive. They have a 14-day trial if you decide to check it out.

    My apologies. I stuck an "e" where there shouldn't be one. Edit the original post and here's the right link:

    The one thing I don't get.....I lose my Treo....all my data is on the Treo and ALL my data is backed up to my SD card. If I found a Treo and I thot of espionage, the 1st thing I would do is to yank that SD card and stick the bugger in a PC Card Reader and copy off all the files. I am not aware of anything that helps one there ..... anyone ?

    You can erase the SD card with MSafe as well.

    Thought the original thread starter stated that he searched

    There is one program that supposedly erases the SD card, but you have to send the command before it's yanked out. Very helpfully, I don't recall which one. (Maybe BackupBuddy or NVBackup.)

    Warden is working on adding this feature, but ditto about sending the command before the card is pulled.

    I do a full backup every night (and hotsynch) and the SD card for backups is left at home. I have not had problems with random resets or corrupted DBs, so haven't had a reason to carry it. Figure I'm more likely to end up with a lost/broken phone and would want to restore to the new phone. For travel, I leave the main backup card at home and take a 256MB card and only backup changed data, so there's never a complete set of data on the SD card with me.

    That would be MSafe.

    I don't know of ANY program that allows the Treo to know when it's been stolen and self-erase . Seems like the next best thing is to be able to erase SD card and Treo in case it's lost (before someone finds it).

    Your backup program should be encrypting or password protecting your backed up files. I understand that not all of them do, but any backup program worth the money should have one of these options (BackupMan, Resco Backup, etc.).

    And if you have any other sensitive files on the card, encrypt and/or password protect the folders/files for a bit more peace of mine.
