If you have lost your cell phone, you can activate a loud alarm on your device – even if the phone is on silent mode. You can also locate the phone using a GPS system so you can see exactly where your phone is hiding.

If you think your phone has been stolen, you can wipe the data from the device by simply using your online account. This prevents anyone from accessing information if the phone has fallen into the wrong hands. Using Lookout Premium, you can also erase all data saved on the SD card that is located in your device.

Lookout Premium protects your smartphone from viruses, malware and spyware. These threats find their way onto your device in a variety of ways and can steal or share any personal information you may have stored on the phone. Malware can be easily transferred through applications downloaded to your phone, email attachments, text or other media messages and Bluetooth connections. To safeguard your information, Lookout Premium offers real-time protection. This means that when a file is received on your device, the security app scans for any suspicious data that may be hidden inside the file. If any threats are found, Lookout works quickly to eliminate the file.

You never know when a malicious file will creep onto your mobile device and steal your information or destroy your smartphone. Lookout Premium protects your privacy and lets you know if anything suspicious is lurking on your cellular device. This software provides you with backups, regular updates and anti-theft features.

Anything can happen to your cellular device. You may lose it or break it, or someone may steal it. With such a long list of common misfortunes, it is important to have some type of backup for the information you store on your device. All the data you want to save can be backed up to your online Lookout account and stored on the cloud. This is particularly ideal if your phone is lost or broken because you can then place all your backup contacts, photos, messages and emails onto your recovered or new cellular device.

Lookout Premium’s main and corresponding menus are user friendly and easy to navigate. All of the feature and function options are simple to find and personalized to fit your security needs. You have access to full reports of the latest app and data scans, which are all easy to read and understand.

This cell phone security software is a true Android application, but you can also use it on your iPhone iOS 4 and above. While we are disappointed that the smartphone security software application is not compatible with more systems, including BlackBerry, Symbian and Windows Phone 7, it is one of the few applications that offer iPhone users the same protection as Android users.
