Remote lock/wipe

Recommended Posts

Could we have some remote security features?

Remote lock and wipe ideally.

Maybe a find my device feature too?

I know this has been requested for mobile devices ios and android, but it could be handy for laptops too

Hi Ross,

I believe that this is already possible. 

Could we have some remote security features?

What would you consider as a remote security feature?

Remote lock and wipe ideally.

You can execute the terminal commands on the remote system from the Pulseway WebApp or from your mobile device, therefore this is already possible.

Maybe a find my device feature too?

If you will click on the 'External IP Address' from your mobile device or from the Pulseway WebApp, then you will see the location for your device on the map.

Take the phrase "you can execute terminal commands" and change it to "press this button" That would be a remote security feature.

Looks like the terminal commands are only available when the device is online also.

Yes, the terminal commands are available only if the system is online. If the system is offline, then you can not connect to its terminal.

And yes, we can introduce the option to press the button to remove a lock, but we do not want to make it so simple.We will consider the possibility to introduce this option.

Any Serious consideration to make this a real feature to lock and or wipe the device remotely with a simple option / button?

It would be very handy that way we don't need an extra MDM to do this.

If it can be done with a script in the meantime than it would also be awesome, so provide a standard script maybe?

Also have an option to schedule a Lock / Wipe so that the next time the device connects to the Internet it will be Locked / wiped.

Hi,

Thank you for your suggestion. We will consider the possibility to introduce this functionality into the future release.
