A few months back, Android and Me reviewed Lookout Mobile Security, a free mobile security suite for your Android phone. We found it to be a decent security suite for the free pricetag.
So, about that free price tag. Today, Lookout has announced that they have added a premium version of their application, which adds the following extra security features:
- Additional Security + Privacy Protection: Privacy Advisor + Secure Wipe and Secure Lock
- Enhanced Backup & Restore: Photos and call history, in addition to contacts. Transfer data to a new phone.
- Premium Support: Priority response to your issues and questions
The added security and features found in the premium version will set you back either $2.99 per month, or $29.99 annually. Though the added ability to securely wipe and lock a lost or stolen phone is an awesome feature, I don’t know that I’d be willing to pay $30/year for it.
But that’s just me. We want to hear from you, our readers. Anyone out there looking to pick up Lookout Premium, even with the $30/year price tag?
How about if we gave it away FOR FREE? Lookout was gracious enough to give us 10 one-year subscriptions to our readers, and all you have to do is leave a comment below (with your email address in appropriate field) telling me why I should/shouldn’t try out Lookout for myself. Convince me that it isn’t necessary/will save my mobile life, and a copy may be yours.
10 users will be randomly selected from the comments on FRIDAY, November 19th at 8pm CST.
Lookout Mobile Security application is currently available free of charge on the Android market for all devices.
