“ Did You know the Average Person would rather lose their Wallet than their Mobile Phone?”

“ Did You know the Average Person would rather lose their Wallet than their Mobile Phone?”

“Recently I was on my way home from shopping when I realised my mobile phone was missing. I remembered using it in the ladies at the mall. Immediately I rushed back to the mall but the phone was gone. I tried calling my phone but it had been switched off. My phone contained my life! And it was gone.”


Wallet or hand phone

Wallet or hand phone?

All my contacts, both professional and personal were stored in it. My calendar contained all my appointments, birthdays and other information. I even had an app that kept track of my menstrual cycle. How was I ever going to retrieve all that information?


What was going to happen to my precious photos, all 3,000 of them? Then I realised with a shudder that I was always logged on to my social networking sites. Whoever had the phone could access all my accounts and profiles. By now I was really in panic mode!


Not knowing what to do, I called my boyfriend. What he told me made me the happiest person in the world! He told me to relax as it was fine. He told me I had McAfee WaveSecure from StarHub and that he had helped me download and activate the mobile phone service. He reassured me that though I had lost the phone, I didn’t have to lose my precious data. I was ecstatic.


McAfee WaveSecure is a free service for all StarHub Mobile Postpaid customers and is designed to secure your mobile phone. It comes with really useful features that let you:

Back up your phone data online

Remotely lock your lost phone

Locate your lost phone

Track unauthorised SIM insertions on your phone

Wipe out data remotely

Restore your data to your phone


I was so thankful for the incredible features. With McAfee WaveSecure, all you lose is the phone, but not the important stuff. I also discovered that StarHub has online and home security solutions. They include protection from web-based threats and monitoring of your home remotely. I am convinced that whether it’s protecting your phone data or safeguarding your kids against harmful sites, StarHub Security Solutions can help.
