With more than 73.3 million people in the United States owning smartphones and using them for business and entertainment, it is crucial for customers to protect the information on their devices from theft, loss, mobile malware, phishing attempts and malicious websites. Sprint is teaming up with Lookout Mobile Security to offer customers an easy way to download an app to help protect the important information stored on their smartphone or tablet.
Sprint customers can easily download the Lookout Mobile Security application from the Android Market by clicking on Lookout Mobile Security within Sprint Zone or the Sprint Tab in the Android Market. Customers can find Sprint Zone as an icon on their device. Lookout offers a free or trial option for consumers that blocks viruses, malware and spyware. In addition to backing up and restoring contacts, the application can pinpoint a lost or stolen phone on a map and emit a loud alarm to pinpoint the device’s exact location.
