Accessing your Mobile via your Facebook account?

How convenient is it if you were able to access your mobile phone & everything on it via Facebook based remote access? Find out more about these new cool developments.

So far people talk about using PC Remote Access technology to access a VPN, Cloud servers or your PC remotely.But what about accessing your mobile and smart phones remotely? What if you forgot your mobile at home while you are at office worrying who called you, about your SMS and chat messages? Well now it is possible to even access your mobile and android based smart phones remotely via a web browser.The concept is similar to accessing your PC or a VPN using Remote Control Software.This new concept however utilizes your Facebook account.In order to get started you will need to download an app from the android marketplace called LookMobile.Then using their remote access application you link your mobile to your Facebook account by linking your mobile app to a Facebook app.The apps perform similarly to that of Remote Access and make it possible for you to access your contacts, SMS and check recent call logs.But of course the use of these apps will raise many privacy concerns.This can be an easy way to link various mobile phones to your Facebook accounts even if you dont own those mobiles! It could be a good tool to spy on your wife/husband, but the same can happen to you.This is possible since there is no authentication needed to access a mobile which is linked to a Facebook account unlike the various layers of security that comes with traditional remote access software.But it should be noted that in order to install the app on a mobile device, the user would need to have physical access to it, so it is not possible for a third party to install it on your phone without your consent, unless you actually let them use your phone.Another concern is the data transfer, using third party networks especially that of an android app alongside a Facebook app from not so well established companies can raise many questions.How secure is the data that is being accessed and transferred remotely? If it is not secure enough then obviously a simple leak can result in valuable mobile data from your phone missing, which can include contact details, etc.There is also no guarantee if the developer will continue to support it and ensure that security mechanisms are always used and adhered to.The bottom line is that this technology is great for personal users as well as certain small business people.However, if you have sensitive information on your phone, or your business is in an industry where security and privacy are very important ( firm, banking, government, etc.) then you should opt for more secure methods of remote access instead.These are slightly more expensive to implementFree Reprint ArticlesFeature Articles, but they will give you the security that you need for your remote access software solutions.
