The App Store and Google Play app for mobile devices is one of the pioneers in the industry, and it’s quite popular among both iOS and Android users. It’s designed with both paid and free features that effectively protect your mobile device. Here’s a full review of this antivirus and backup tool.
Lookout Security & Antivirus turns out to be the most user-friendly and leading iOS and Google Android app. It has a simple design that makes it a compelling mobile security app with absolute simplicity. The user interface is also relatable, and it’s easy to view the alerts or maneuver through the settings and modes. In this category, I would rate the app 4.8/7.
Lookout is currently the only app for all Android devices and iOS gadgets which offers all-in-one. With this app, you can protect your device, identity, and data with the aid of powerful identity theft and mobile security protection. First, it has a System Advisor which alerts you whenever you are exposed to software that is out of date. You can also locate your device and induce an alarm whether or not it’s in silent mode. Moreover, it is possible to receive an email notification stating the device’s location in case any suspicious behavior on the phone is detected.
The app also has a useful Cyber Watch feature which monitors all your financial and personal information and notifies you whenever any of these are exposed online. Additionally, you get to control your social media accounts to prevent disclosing any of your personal information to risk and also protect your online reputation.
The latest version of the app offers bug fixes alongside overall improvements and enhancements in functionality. You can also get the Lookout Premium and Lookout Premium Plus in-app purchases both of which go for $2.99 and $9.99 respectively. Notably, an update alone won’t offer enough protection, so it’s advisable that you go Premium.
On compatibility, the app works with both operating systems. It requires Android version 4.1 and above as well as Apple devices above iOS 9.0 which include several iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad varieties. Here, I award it a score of 4.8/5.
Ease of Use
As mentioned, this is among the mobile antiviruses that are quite easy to use. The user interface is convenient and accessing the app features is simple. Contrary to other similar mobile applications, Lookout works seamlessly across both OS platforms, and I’ve never experienced any lags on my device. It also doesn’t crash, an attribute that keeps the developer ahead of the rest. The ease of use section earns a 4.9/5.
- Premium+ users are covered by the app’s identity Theft Insurance of up to $1 million;
- Lost wallet recovery;
- Offers social media protection.
- Most features offered by the in-app purchases are free in other mobile security apps;
- The in-app purchases may discourage users;
- The free version has nothing much to offer.
