    Default Lookout draining the battery

    I have been running into issues with Lookout draining my battery, its eating up about 50% or more per day with my phone sitting idle on my desk. Has anyone else run into this?

    I will be disabling it when I get a Note 3 again this week. I went to Lookout's site to alert them but they don't seem to have a way to tell them about a bug that is sucking the battery. What annoys me is its pre-installed and its a POS app draining my battery.

    Get rid of lookout and get 360 security if you want/need a security app. Has a lot of features.

    Just had to uninstall the app because of sudden battery drain.

    Have used it without a problem for the past year or so.

    Possibly some recent update issue

    I've used it for about 3 years now and had to uninstall it for many reasons. First it wouldn't hold the "dial number and not scan with Lookout" default when dialing from a Google search. It was also using a lot of battery. Since they went with AT&T as a pre-installed app, it isn't working the same.
