A Nigerian company -E.F. Network Ltd, has developed a mobile application that can make a device unusable by thieves, to curb theft or resale of mobile phones and other gadgets in the country.
Mr Ameh Ochojila, the company’s public relations officer said this in a statement on Tuesday, in Abuja.
Ochojila, said that the application named ‘ephonetaxi’ will help provide solution to the growing number of stolen phones in the country and across the globe.
“The application ‘ephonetaxi’ helps to lock out anyone who is unauthorised to use the phone, making it unusable and unsellable,” he said.
According to him, the application is designed to protect phone owners and the information stored on their phones from being compromised in the event of a phone theft.
“The application helps retrieve and send the user’s stored contents to his email.
