    Exclamation BlackBerry Protect Now Available for Download!


    Please welcome the BlackBerry® Protect team for a guest blog post to tell us all about the opening of the BlackBerry Protect beta, and some of the features included in the app! Take it away, team… – Ed.

    Last year we introduced the world to BlackBerry Protect via limited beta. Throughout the beta, we received great feedback from the thousands of BlackBerry® Beta Zone users who tested out this personal data security solution, ultimately shaping it into what it is today.

    Based on the tremendously positive feedback we’ve received on the improvements made to the product, I’m extremely happy to announce that we are opening the BlackBerry Protect beta. This beta is currently available in North America and some of Latin America only, although there will be further country rollout to come in the next couple of months! If you live in North America or Latin America and you weren’t able to be part of the original limited beta, you can now install BlackBerry Protect for free from the BlackBerry App World™ Test Center. You can also find it at the BlackBerry Protect web page, which is where you’ll need to go if you ever need help finding a misplaced BlackBerry® smartphone once the BlackBerry Protect device software has been installed (note: it may take up to 24 hours for BlackBerry Protect to appear in BlackBerry App World for some users. It will be available immediately on the BlackBerry Protect web page).

    As a quick reminder, here’s a summary of what BlackBerry Protect offers:


    BlackBerry Protect helps you find your smartphone and protect your important information by:

    • Assisting in locating your BlackBerry smartphone on a map via GPS and cell-tower triangulation
    • Locking and setting a device password
    • Activating a special loud ring to help find your smartphone, even if it’s in silent mode
    • Displaying a custom message on the home screen so that anyone who finds it knows how to return it
    • Forcing an instant wireless backup of data even when you don’t have the smartphone with you
    • And as a last resort, securely wiping all information from your BlackBerry smartphone, including the data from your SD card.


    Additionally, the new wireless backup and restore features include:

    • Automatically, periodically and wirelessly backing up your contacts, calendar appointments, memos, tasks, browser bookmarks, and text messages
    • Optionally restricting backup to when within Wi-Fi® coverage or disable backup when roaming
    • Wirelessly restoring backed up data to a new BlackBerry smartphone



    And finally, some of the key feature improvements we’ve incorporated based on your beta feedback:

    • Easier discovery and highlighting of BlackBerry Protect-related system messages
    • Better clarity in status messages
    • Unique and improved Loud Ring ringtone
    • Clearer, simpler and more descriptive UI icons and graphics


    BlackBerry Protect is a really great example of how BlackBerry Beta Zone members help to make BlackBerry smartphone applications and experiences better. If you’re not already a BlackBerry Beta Zone member, be sure to join so that you too can start testing out new products before they’re released.

    Install BlackBerry Protect for free today, and be assured your smartphone data is protected even when you are busy and on the go! Let us know right here in the comments or in BlackBerry App World what you think of the open beta (speaking of BlackBerry App World, BlackBerry Protect leverages BlackBerry ID, so if you’re already using BlackBerry App World 2.0, you’re already set up with an ID!).

    Thanks for your support!

    I have been waiting for this for months, so glad it is available now!

    Does anyone have a OTA link to download this, I don't use App World?

    In the mean time, I'll keep looking for an alternate download method.

    After installing twice and rebooting, all I get when launching the app is this error pop up.

    "Error starting net_rim_bb_dryad_gui:
    Module 'net_rim_crypto' not found."

    Any idea where the problem lies?

    After doing more research, the module "net_rim_crypto" isn't installed.

    My guess is this was taken from a OS6 install and does not properly work with OS5.

    I'm getting, "You cannot install Blackberry Protect on your device. Blackberry Protect is not compatible with devices that use a BES." But I am not on a BES with my 9550.

    Try to connect your Torch to BBSAK and remove BlackBerry Protect codes. I thing you should have time to remove them till next reboot.

    BBSAK gets a connection right when it reboots. I think I'm ruined.

    How disappointing that they weren't able to get it working with those on a BES. I tried the app on my personal BB and it works great, but after installing and rebooting my work BB, imagine my disappointment to see that it still doesn't work with those on a BES. Another funny thing about BB Protect is that if you have memory encryption turned on, BB Protect won't run until you turn off memory encryption. So in order to get the added protection of BB Protect you have to make your device less secure by disabling memory encryption? Doesn't make sense.

    Worked like a charm thanks for the OTA

    EDIT: I was able to get a complete backup from device but when I login to BB protect site, it says "There is no device associated with your account." Strange.

    I still don't understand. It's telling me I'm on a BES, but my 9550 is not. Am I missing a setting or something? Anyone?

    Torch 9800 on AT&T.. Downloaded and Installed Fine. As soon as I try to run the app, REBOOT. My phone has even looped multiple times in the reboot process. It did finally come back up; I tried to run BB protect again... and once again, REBOOT. I guess I will leave it on here and maybe try running again tomorrow. This s*** is pissing me off
