Technical Questions
Does RecoveryCop work on my phone?
RecoveryCop works on smartphones which run the Windows Mobile version 6.x. This means it could be 6.0, 6.1, etc. A partial list of compatible phones can be found here. Your phone’s account must have Internet access to upload logs. If your phone does NOT run Windows Mobile, for example it does not say “Windows Mobile” when you first turn your phone on, it is NOT compatible. It is also not compatible with earlier versions of Windows Mobile. It must be version 6.x. RecoveryCop is not currently compatible with Blackberry, iPhone, Symbian, Android or other smartphone platforms.

Will a thief know the program is installed or running?
RecoveryCop uses the latest innovations in mobile monitoring to keep your monitoring safe and secure. There are no indications that the program is running while it is active. The program has no entries in the Windows Mobile Start Menu, and its files are extremely discreet. Best of all, when RecoveryCop is running, there is NO entry for it in the Windows Mobile Task Manager. The program starts automatically in stealth mode at every boot of the phone. The only exception is if you decide to lock the phone. If so the software is not mentioned by name but it’s obvious there is some sort of security software installed.
