We’re proud to announce that the newly redesigned Lookout Mobile Security app for Android is here! Our new Lookout update is available in English for our Free and Premium users in the Google Play Store!
We’ve been hard at work over the last few months rethinking every part of our app with a focus on trying to make smart additions that solve the next generation of mobile security threats. From the brand new interface, to the way we notify you of important security information, to added security protections, and a new way to find your lost phone (even with a dying battery!), the new Lookout is all about doing even more to protect your mobile life.
Lookout’s New Look
Clean and sleek, our new design takes advantage of the latest Android OS design conventions for a consistent, seamless experience that makes it easier to find what you’re looking for.
Lost Phone + Dead Battery = No Problem
Dead batteries are a sad fact of mobile life these days. In fact, we found that 30% of people are unable to recover their lost phone because of a dead battery. At Lookout, we got “fired up” to solve this problem! Signal Flare is a first-ever capability that automatically flags your phone’s last known location when the battery gets really low, significantly improving your chances of getting your lost phone back.
Stay in the Know
We heard from you that you want to know all the ways that Lookout is protecting you, so we made it even easier to see all of that in one place. The Activity Feed is an intelligent dashboard that informs you of threats, keeps you up to date with your app downloads, data backups and security notifications — all so you always know when to take action and when everything is OK.
Designed to be battery friendly and lightweight, our new app is optimized for your life on the go so you can efficiently take action against security threats with just two clicks.
Protecting You Against Dialer-Based Threats
Recently, Lookout identified a new category of threat– dialer-based attacks that can wipe your personal information and your phone without your knowledge. In response, we built Safe Dialer as a first-of-its-kind, click-to-call protection. Safe Dialer scans every phone number you click to call from any website, alerting you if dialing the number might have unintended consequences, such as wiping the data off your phone instantly, without your permission. The best news is that with the latest version of Lookout, you are automatically protected against these threats.
We hope you are as excited as we are about the new experience, and we’re also working on bringing it to 10 additional languages soon.
