The Lookout Security & Antivirus app is available for free and also as a Premium offering. For many the free account may be enough to meet your needs, however the Premium version does have a few worthwhile features. With that in mind, it looks like Lookout Premium is now being included for T-Mobile users that go with the JUMP upgrade program.
Well, specifically, T-Mobile customers using the JUMP program as well as those enrolled in the Asurion Premium Handset Protection (PHP) program. If you are a current Lookout customer you should be getting an email notification with details, however if you are not already a Lookout user now seems like a good time to give it a second look.
Details coming from Lookout mention how they have partnered with T-Mobile “to provide mobile security as part of their insurance packages.” Further details from Lookout tell the story about how the Premium level will be free of charge, that the update will happen automatically and you will “continue to receive Lookout Premium services for the duration of your insurance plan.”
Lookout, as a free offering has goodies including app scanning as well as continuous over-the-air protection against viruses, malware, adware and spyware. The free version of Lookout also includes a find my phone option. This portion brings the ability to locate your lost device on a map, have it sound an alarm and even send an email with a picture and location when someone incorrectly enters the passcode three times.
Shifting over to the Premium level coverage and that includes contact backups and the ability to restore. Other Premium features include photo and call history backup (and restore), safe browsing which blocks URLs that are considered dangerous and even the option to remotely lock and/or wipe the device should you find it lost or stolen and are not able to recover it. Lookout Premium would normally run you $2.99 on a monthly basis or $29.99 on an annual basis.
