Lookout Mobile Security provides complete data and anti-theft protection, being a one-stop security solution for your smartphone or tablet, but to use Web protection and other essential features you have to upgrade to the paid version. Other than that and the fact that the app tends to eat quite a lot of resources, this is one of the most polished and reliable Android security apps.
Sleek, intuitive interface: Lookout Mobile Security's streamlined obsidian interface makes scanning, backing up contacts, and locating a device quick and effortless. What's more, the developer has judiciously integrated Premium features like Safe Browsing and Privacy Advisor into the interface, so that, although they are not available, they don't get in your way.
Physical as well as digital protection: In Android's over-saturated Security apps category, this solution stands out thanks to its complete protection, which includes, apart from a potent antivirus and real-time scanner, a quick Contacts backup tool and effective device tracking and locating features. These work smoothly and are really easy to use.
Locked essential features: Premium features like Safe Browsing, Privacy Advisor, and Photo and Call History Backups are offered by other security apps for free.
Battery drainer: This app takes its toll on your battery, draining it faster than other security apps. We lost as much as 13-14 percent of the battery while testing this app.
Limited backup: While the app promises data backup, it only backs up contacts for the free version, and only call history and photos for the paid version -- making it not so useful on a tablet. An apps backup option would have been useful.
Lookout Mobile Security looks great and brings you well-made security features that keep your data as well as your device safe from malware, loss, or theft. That said, because the free version lacks Web protection, it's not as appealing as other similar apps out there. Still, if you're willing to pay for an antivirus app, you should definitely grab this app, especially since you can try all the Premium features for 14 days.
