    -- Remotely wipe your device.
    -- Remotely backup up call logs or sms logs(or both) to either Dropbox or Google Drive.
    -- Remotely enable sound on device and make it scream.
    -- Create an IMSI(SIM Card) whitelist

    aeGis will let you know via response if your action has been completed.
