If there’s one thing you can be sure of in the modern world, it’s that the flasher and smarter your phone, the more likely it is that shadow-lurking envious eyes will be plotting to take it away from you, possibly involving some subtle subterfuge, possibly some surprise violence.
Now normally in the case of either of these mobile-removal scenarios, or even if you’re just cursed with the kind of memory mocked even by goldfish and prone to forgetting your phone, you wouldn’t really ever expect to see your technological tether to the world ever again, would you? Well you just might if you’d had the foresight to download the Lookout Security & Antivirus app… especially with the all-new update!
Handling the ‘smart’ part of smartphone with absolute aplomb, Lookout not only protects your device by detecting and removing malware, viruses and spyware, it can also scan every number called from your browser, block dangerous URLs, and even lets you locate your missing phone or tablet using Google Maps, giving you the option to remotely activate an alarm to pinpoint that location (or the person concealing it, although LOA does not endorse vigilantism; unless you’re Batman). Or, failing all of that, lock and wipe data from your missing mobile to stop it falling into the thieving fingers of Fagan’s digital Den dwellers.
Free to download and use, a monthly subscription of a meagre US $2.99 gives you access to Premium features (the first two weeks trial is free with no credit card required) and upgrade elements include a nifty new-look interface, an Activity Feed to check Lookout is working its hardest to keep you safe and, as a last ditch effort to help you save your stolen or stray smartphone, Signal Flare, which automatically flags the last known location of your device on Google Maps when the battery is all but dead.
Download Lookout from Google Play now and stay safe.
