aeGis is an OSS alternative to other security apps that interact via SMS.
With aeGis you can: -- Locate and track your phone if it goes missing or is stolen by receiving sms updates of its location. -- Remotely lock your device with a password or pin number. -- Remotely wipe your device. -- Remotely backup up call logs or sms logs(or both) to either Dropbox or Google Drive. -- Remotely enable sound on device and make it scream. -- Create an IMSI(SIM Card) whitelist
aeGis will let you know via response if your action has been completed.
