Re: about the desktop manager and remotely wiping out data to factory settings

Hello raeginea and welcome to the BlackBerry® Support Community Forums.


The BlackBerry® Desktop Software does not have a remote option to delete user data from a lost BlackBerry® smartphone.


Did you happen to have installed and activated the BlackBerry® Protect™ app?


If not, it would be advised you contact your mobile network provider as well as the local authorities to report your missing device.


Hope this helps to answer your question.
