Lookout Around the World: Russian, Korean and Traditional Chinese Now Available

Hello, ni hao, 안녕하세요, приве́т!;

The Lookout passport is getting pretty full. Our award-winning Android security app is now available on Google Play in Russian, Korean and Traditional Chinese. This is in addition to the previously localized versions of Lookout in GermanFrench, JapaneseSpanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Polish and Simplified Chinese.

Users around the world can now keep their mobile device protected in their local language. With today’s additions, Lookout is now available in eleven different languages! Here are a few fun facts to celebrate today’s launch:

  • Eleven is a prime number. Pretty sweet!
  • Russians, Koreans and Traditional Chinese speakers will enjoy a native experience with all of the great Lookout security (including antivirus), missing device and backup features.
  • More than 50% of the entire world speaks at least one of these eleven languages, but almost 90% of all the Android users in the world speak these languages (based on data from Canalys).

We think protecting your phone with Lookout sounds good in any language, and we’re excited to give more Android fans around the world the best possible experience when they use the Lookout app.

    Well that’s all well and good, but I live in Switzerland yet I don’t speak the local languages here, only English. It’d be nice if here’s at least an option to choose what language you’d like instead of forcing whatever the local language is onto you.

      @Marcus, thanks for your message. Depending on the type of mobile device you own, you should be able to select from a few language options. From the home screen, select “settings” > “language and keyboard” > “system language.” If your mobile device enables you to select “English,” when you go to download Lookout in the Google Play Store, the app will be in English (or if you already have Lookout installed, the app will appear in English). If you have any other questions, please feel free to email us: feedback@mylookout[dot]com. Thank you!
