My Xperia

Not all cases of a lost or stolen phone end with a happy ending like this one. Luckily for Xperia smartphone owners, Sony has announced last month that it’ll be introducing its own security and phone tracking service called my Xperia.

While the service has officially gone live for users in Nordic countries, those outside the region don’t have to feel left out, as the leaked my Xperia app can be downloaded and installed by all Xperia owners – regardless of the location. However, it looks like the app will only run on devices running at least Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich.

As shared by Xperia Blog, you can grab a copy of the file here. Don’t forget to tick the “Unknown Sources” in the Security settings on your phone to ensure that the installation can go through.

My Xperia lets you find your device with a sound alert or show its whereabouts on a map. You can also delete data and files remotely, as well as locking the phone should you experience the misfortune of losing it. Let us below know how the security app runs on your Xperia handset.
