A new Android-based application to protect your device, called Lookout Mobile Security, has recently appeared on the Android Market.
The author of this application, a programmer from the xda Sonic Design forum, wanted to create an application that protects the smartphone from viruses, but is easy and user-friendly at the same time and doesn’t consume much battery power. We can now judge the final result and say that the author managed to achieve all those goals, especially the last one: in a day Lookout Mobile Security consumes as much power as a 33-second phone talk would consume.
The application not only scans your smartphone for viruses, but also protects it from malware like DroidDream and Tapsnake spyware and different Trojans, which are recently being found in nearly every second downloaded application.
There is one more cool thing in this application—with the “Find My Phone” function it can help you find your lost or stolen smartphone on the Google Maps. It can also back up your contacts and other info and restore it, if needed.
If you’re interested in this application, you can have a look at the video introducing Lookout Mobile Security:
This application can be downloaded from the Android Market, and the good news is that it is for FREE. Lookout Mobile Security also has Facebook and Twitter pages, so it’s possible to follow them there.
