LOL which moran did wrote this?
What i understood from this is, that from browser you will connect to google server, where you will set changes, which will become active once device connects to web. So if phone is stolen, how will it increase security? the one who stole, woudl just disable internet and use your secure info without problems. + who sad that google is not stealing this info? Most importntat part is that google now have made a way, to steal your sensetive info and do it without any posobility to be blamed!

If you have a better idea, feel free to patent it and sell it.

Practically all corporate phones, laptops, etc. would all have your babies.

@usera
Most of the PDA usually have access to company info when they connect online (website, Exchange Servers) and the ability to remote wipe as soon as it's stolen from a browser is awesome (not to mention saves a ton of money for both server cost, time and IT)
It's not meant to increase security it's meant to have the ability to do something about it if it get's lost.The phone would lock after a period of inactivity, which means unless the person is using it at all times it would lock or would require a password next time it would turn on.


Learn how to spell and maybe you'll get a job where you can learn to appreciate security features like this.
