If you’ve ever read any of my reviews on SmrtGuard, then you’re familiar with the feature of SmrtGuard called the Personal Guardian. I love this feature. Beginning today, it’s available separately in the BlackBerry App World for $19.99. What is the Personal Guardian?
It’s your personal guardian when you’re alone or someplace unfamiliar. It allows you to set your BlackBerry Convenience key with a silent alarm after holding it for a few seconds. Here’s the details:
The silent alarm will:
* Dial 911 (or configure a number of your choice)
* Send out Twitter Message with your location information
* Send out Email with your location information
* Send out SMS with your location information
After setting up, Personal Guardian also alerts you when an unauthorized SIMCard is used on your BlackBerry® Smartphone. With the alerts, it will also turn on real time tracking.
Personal Guardian provides a web interface where you can manage your account and track your phone.
Personally I love having the SmrtGuard Pro which has all the features in it, but this is great for that person who only wants the security of knowing they have a way to be sure they’re safe.
SmrtGuard Pro is available in the BlackBerry Sync Store with all the features for three different subscriptions:
