Lookout Security & Antivirus
50,000,000 - 100,000,000 downloads
- Back up
- Phone locator
- Nothing special
An award-winning security app.
Lookout Mobile Security has three main features. First, a security widget to scan, block and remove malware. Scans can be scheduled and the threat database is updated regularly.
Second- and what we consider to be its best feature- a phone locator. You can make your phone ring even if it's in silent mode and locate it via GPS from any web browser. Some of the latest smartphones already have this feature built-in, but it's interesting if yours hasn't. You'll appreciate it someday if your phone gets lost or stolen.
And last but not least, you can backup data and contacts and restore them later. You can access all backed up data from your PC. Access to 'myLookout' is granted once you've installed the app.
One big question remains: is it too early to have an antivirus? Are there enough threats to justify downloading and paying? We just don't know yet, but the added features are clearly useful. We may not know if there are viruses out there, but we're sure that there are plenty of thieves.
This is the free version. You can upgrade and get more features such as remote lock or remote wipe.
