    Default Lookout Security & Antivirus

    I see that "Lookout Security & Antivirus" has come out with a new version. I have never had it installed and really don't think I need the antivirus protection. I am interested in it because of the "locate" your lost phone features. I know there are other apps that provide this feature but the others seem to require text services and I don't have text service.



    Would appreciate your comments on this app or suggestions on alternate apps for locating lost phone.

    I've had lookout on my nexus and my X. Never had a problem.

    i love Lookout.

    1. it can find your phone if it's lost or stolen - even if your battery dies.
    2. it's lightweight - it uses very little battery and resources.
    3. the malware detector works. i tested it by purposely installing "SMS Replicator" and it caught it on my phone after a scan.
    4. i trust them - they are a reputable AMERICAN company based in the U.S.
    5. it's FREE.

    IMO - install it.

    I have it on both my phone and tablet and it runs very smoothly. Best free AntiVirus app out there. I highly recommend it.

    Thanks for all of the responses, I have installed Lookout and it does seem like a good app. I was worried that the antivirus portion would bog down the phone but I don't see any difference.
