Irish company Yougetitback.com has been chosen by Best Buy to provide a mobile device recovery solution. Its ‘Locked & Found’ service will be available as a part of Best Buy’s Geek Squad Black Tie Protection Program in Best Buy stores across the USA.
The Locked & Found service secures data on smartphones by locking the device remotely and attempting to locate the device. Features include location tracking and a remote’ scream’ option.
Paul Prendergast, head of sales and co-founder of Yougetitback, said “In today’s consumer electronics market, value is not simply defined as getting the best price, but also having a strong in-store experience and a quality post-purchase relationship. Locked & Found provides consumers with an experience that reflects the value customers place on their mobile products. The benefits of this program include increased data security coupled with a greater likelihood of recovery of lost or stolen devices.”
