With more than 400,000 apps available on the Android Market, you can do almost anything with a mobile app these days. Find the fastest way home, order takeout, post a captioned picture, search for a new apartment or a new partner, and even bump phones to settle up a bill with friends. But it seems like the more useful the app, the more information it needs about you—and not all apps are who they say they are.
A growing number of apps have been found with malware embedded in them. Mobile apps that contain malware can steal your private information, freeze or wipe data from your phone and potentially run up your bill by dialing or texting premium rate numbers without your knowledge. Spyware apps can track your location, eavesdrop on calls, read your email and even turn your phone into a sound recorder. With all the uses you have for your smartphone, you need to be sure that your Android device is free of malicious software – and that it stays that way.
With millions of users across 170 countries and 400 mobile networks worldwide, Lookout is the world’s #1 Android virus scanner.

You can trust Lookout to provide the most comprehensive and reliable Android virus protection you can find anywhere.
