    Before I got the S6 I was out of the Android game for a while. Noticed that the phone came with a T-mobile branded version of Lookout Security and was curious if this was OK to disable or should I keep it around?

    The constant scanning notifications and safe browsing active popups are driving me crazy.

    Yes, it's OK if it bugs you that much. But I would seriously consider just disabling the features you want. I think that Lookout implements the missing device, lock, and wipe better than most and is worth it if you are with T Mobile.

    Lookout is a decent app. If I remember correctly from when I was using it there should be settings to turn off the annoying notifications. It's got some good stuff in the app like backups, lost phone, and all that. I wouldn't say it's required and there are other app that provide the same features.

    If you ever get tired of seeing a notification from an app pop up, just long press and hold that specific notification. It'll flip so to speak and a little "i" with a circle around it shows up. Click that button and it'll take you to the notifications setting where you can then turn it off completely.
