Assurion Launches Mobile Protection App For Insurance Subscribers

So Assurion, our oh-so favorite insurance company for our beloved smartphones from Verizon (should you choose to purchase it through the carrier at least,) has developed an official mobile protection and recovery app for anyone currently subscribed to the insurance through their monthly plan.

Droid-life.com managed to snag up the link where you can download this app right now if you would like and start using it.  You really only need to have the insurance on your account.  With that, Kellex from Droid-life stated that he was able to successfully download and install (and use) this app without having insurance on his account, so there may not be any real check and balance right now if you don’t really have the insurance, and still may be able to use the app.

So what does it do?  Well basically it gives you all the standard features you’d expect from a mobile protection and recovery app.  Some of the features included are:

  • Sound an alarm from a misplaced phone, even if it’s set to silent
  • Locate a lost phone on a map, with turn-by-turn directions
  • Lock a lost or stolen phone to ensure your privacy
  • Remotely erase contacts from a lost or stolen phone
  • Available at no added cost with Verizon Wireless Total Equipment Coverage
  • So as you can see this will be a pretty handy app if you don’t already have a similar service.  I think this is going to cause me to ditch mine and solely use theirs.  There’s just something about using the product from your insurance company that makes you hope if something does happen they have the proof already to back up your claim.  Time will tell on that one though.

    If you’d like to download this app, head to the following URL from your phone.

    Then once it’s installed head over to https://www.mymobilerecovery.com/ to test it out!

    Enjoy!
