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.
