BlackBerry Protect is designed to help find your lost BlackBerry smartphone and keep the information on it secure. In BlackBerry 10, BlackBerry Protect is a feature built into the OS. For smartphones running on BlackBerry 7 OS and earlier versions of BlackBerry Device Software, BlackBerry Protect is a free application you can download on your smartphone.
The current location of your device can be mapped, you can make it ring loudly to help you find it even if sound is currently turned off, a customized message can be sent to your home screen even if the device is locked, it can be locked and optionally a new password can be set and you can permanently delete all data from the device. All these actions are done remotely from the Blackberry Protect Website.
My Blackberry Z10 was located correctly in Cloche d’Or, Luxembourg.
