    remotely wipe information

    so this is my issue:

    I recently bought a laptop and immediately added my dropbox, one drive and gmail. during the night i left it on and woke up to a dead battery, i then went to charge it but found out that the device is faulty and would not charge so i sent it back however my accounts are still on there.
    Is there a way to remotely wipe the accounts from this device?

    Remote wipe undo

    Last night I thought I lost my phone and went for the nuclear option of remotely wiping it only to find this morning that my friend actually picked it up by accident, is there a way I can undo the remote wipe?

    Security on E61 - remote wipe?

    at least you can remote wipe for email using RoadSync for Series 60. Remote Wipe command allows IT administrators to wipe sensitive Exchange data from the device over the Web, in case a device gets lost or stolen.

    Remote Wipe Not Working

    I would suggest that you remove the deviec from the MyPhone site. Removing the devie WILL NOT remove the data so you will be good to go when you get the new phone.

    Absolutely ... if you remove the old device and set up a new one, the "numbers" it records for identification are different. That will not be an issue.

    BTW, I would have done a manual hard reset if the phone was not lost. I am surprised that the remote wipe did not work. Reports from others indicated it worked well .... I have yet to try it but I may just have to to test it out.
