    Smile Lookout for the Thrive?

    does Lookout have a version out for tablets, I tried to download it, but can't seem to get it to work.
    One of there support team members has been giving me suggestions, but so far nothing has worked.

    anyone else using it on the Thrive?

    If so, how did you get it installed and working?

    Perseverance counts!

    Can you tell us what to look out for if/when other forum members want to use Lookout?

    Especially since I would like to put it on the Acer Iconia.

    This is what the support tech, finally came up with and emailed me to do to get Lookout on my tablet:
    .

    The reason why you're having trouble finding Lookout in the market on your tablet is due to the fact that it doesn't support SMS messages. We rely on SMS messages to initiate a connection to a device in the event it's lost, stolen, etc. Without the ability to receive SMS messages the missing device features would be greatly hindered, however, device based backups and malware protection would work normally.

    Until we release a version that's more compatible with your tablet you can install it using this alternate method:

    The first thing you'll want to do is enable the installation of non-market applications. To do this:

    Go to settings > application > and check the box next to "Unknown Sources." Go ahead and disregard the warning (by clicking OK), we can uncheck it later.

    Next, back out of Settings and open up the web browser and browse over to . This will download our app to your tablet. Then you should go to your downloads window (usually accessible from your browser itself) and click on the file that starts with 'com.lookout'. That will get the app installed on your tablet and then you can log in with your email address and a password of your choice. Then you should be all set.


    You can also schedule regular anti-virus scans by clicking on the menu while Lookout is open and choosing ‘Security’. In this menu you can setup scheduled security scans.

    Thanks for using Lookout!

    Hope this helps, anyone wanting to use Lookout on there Tablet.

    Nonie, you made a very wise decision NOT to activate the Kaspersky free trial on your Thrive!

    How are you liking lookout?

    Does lookout turn on your Thrive when your Thrive is turned off?

    Does lookout give you optional settings (such as when you want scans to run, etcetera)?

    What types of information does lookout put in the bottom right notifications area?

    I want to put lookout on my Thrive but I'm leery of any mobile security app after my unpleasant experience with the Kaspersky free trial that has transitioned into a permanent tribulation.

    Hummingbirdhill, I do still like it.

    . No it does not turn on my thrive. Hmmm, don't really remember if I could set when I wanted it to scan, but I think so, sometimes when I turn it on, it will show that it is scanning.

    It the notification area, it puts the lookout emblem. When you click on the emblem it opens to a screen, that shows, different menus. Top right shows a √ mark, and you can click on any item, see when last scanned or tell it to scan. While you have the trial premium, anytime you add app, it scans right away and also has "safe brownsing".
    After your trial time and if you don't sign up for payed premium, you no longer have the safe browsing and privacy advisor. It will show them, but they are not active.
    I haven't gone with the payed premium yet, but I may.

    Hope this helps.

    Thank you so much, Nonie, for answering my questions; I've been attempting to get Lookout onto my Thrive ever since you posted.

    However, the android market won't let me "purchase" it (even though it's free). I have no problems purchasing from the amazon apps for android but apparently amazon doesn't stock Lookout. I now await a reply from a Lookout rep as to how to get their product onto my Thrive . . .

    I bookmarked your post detailing what you had to do but I mistakenly thought that's what you had to do after downloading the lookout. At any rate, I received the same instructions from lookout that you had!

    Do you know what site that weird link goes to, Nonie? It might be one of those shortened urls but I don't use them . . . This is sooooo frustrating; why does the andy market have to be soooooo difficult? IRK

    Alas, I tried to get McAfee Mobile Security just now and the android market sent a popup:
    Purchase cancelled
    Error processing purchase.
    Retry Cancel

    That's the popup I get on my Thrive every single time I attempt to obtain an app from the android market. I surely wish I could discover the problem!

    Another thing is:
    Android Market isn't in "My apps" on my Thrive like Amazon is. I feel that has something to do with my not being able to do business with the android market. But I don't know what to do to get the market into "My apps" if that is what is needed . . . Can someone kindly advise me here?

    Hummingbirdhill, no I don't know about the site. I just know it took going step by step to get it loaded.

    The mkt app is in the list of apps, I just clicked on it and put it on one of the home pages, then I could go to mkt site.

    Let us know if you get it loaded.

    No, the only ones there, are ones I've downloaded, not the ones that came on the thrive.

    Like Lookout and a couple games.

    When you put it on one of your home pages, then you should be able to click on it and the market will open, with apps.

    Yo, nonie, I began using Lookout a few weeks ago, and the ugly kaspersky doesn't seem to limit Lookout as it did McAfee. Lookout is by far superior! Are you still using Lookout? So far, I've not purchased the premium (just using the free version); however I'm thinking I'd really prefer to have the enhanced backup of the premium . . .

    Hi Hummingbirdhill, yes i am still using lookout. I have no complaints with it, everytime i download/update something, lookout scans it right away.

    I got a new phone and am now using lookout on it also.

    Lol. Nonie, you answered my next question before I asked it! I'm also considering using the Lookout on my HTC Inspire4G. What kind of new phone are you using?
