Free Anti-Virus App for BlackBerry Lookout with Remote Data Wipe and Tracking

Comments

Lookout is a new app for BlackBerry that aims to prevent your smartphone from security risks such as malware, viruses and hackers. The app is still in Beta, and while it’s difficult to determine whether it’s effective, it’s a free app so there isn’t much to lose. Features include:

  • Scans every app you download to make sure it’s safe.
  • Backs up your contacts and photos and allows you to access that data from any web browser.
  • Routine data syncs that can be scheduled to run automatically.
  • Restore your data to an existing phone or a new phone.
  • Allow users to easily track down their device and find it if it is lost or stolen.
  • Remotely wipe the data from your Blackberry if it is permanently lost.

To download Lookout, just go to m.myLookout.com from your BlackBerry browser, or register by SMS at their site.

    I guess there are people that download stuff they shouldn't so this will start to become a useful type of application on the BlackBerry. Next to that we can just restrict people using BES from installing software. I just dont want to deal with the pitchfork mob when I do it.

    this is the only thing i've downloaded & now i'm getting tons of spam messages. i spend all my time opting out of emails…

    Wow there is one born every minute.. if they're SPAM and you are opting out you are just letting them know you are a legitimate address so you'll just get more. Unless it is from a reputable company just delete the email and hope they leave you alone.

    No. Eicar is a standard test definition. Works on anything. Just plop 'eicar' in a text file.
