A free security app for smartphones. Lookout.

Boot Camp feature for Wednesday, September 28, 2011

  A free security app for smartphones.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   Mobile security  is getting to be a hot topic with a number of big name PC protection companies selling solutions.   One that is focused exclusively on smartphones is Lookout Mobile Security, which offers full featured protection for Android,
Windows Mobile and Blackberry devices for free.   Director of Communications Alicia DiVittorio…

Lookout is an app that keeps your phone safe.  It protects you from digital threats such as malware and spyware and clicking on unsafe links.  It protects your data, it backs it all up.  If you lose your phone, we can find it if it’s lost or stolen.

Lookout does offer a premium version which adds the ability to remotely lock and wipe your phone for under thirty dollars a year.   Again it is for Android, Windows Mobile and Blackberry devices.  There’s more info at Mylookout.com.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
