Keep your iOS devices safe and secure with lookout


by Lookout, Inc.
Taking a look around
FREE in the App Store

Keep your iOS devices safe and secure with lookout. You can locate your missing device from anywhere and also take advantage of a great Apple Watch app that builds on the device's bulit-in Ping feature and makes it even more useful. With an in-app purchase of $2.99 per month or $29.99 per year, you can also unlock a Premium subscription. That will automatically backup your photos and also provide theft alerts. When the app notices any behavior that possibly means your iPhone or iPad has been stolen, you’ll receive an email with the last known location of your device.

Taking a look around

What is it about?

When that time comes and you’ve misplaced an iPhone, just open up the app on the Apple Watch watch. Right away, you’ll notice the name of your phone and a distance bar that’s a modern take on the old “you’re getting warmer” game. It will be green when you’re very close to your phone and goes red the further away you are. If that doesn’t help, you can hit the “Scream” button. It definitely lives up to that name as its your phone will emit a extremely loud tone that sounds like an ambulance or police car.

For those who...

  • Want to add an extra layer of security for their iOS devices. Who have an Apple Watch and want to use it to find their misplaced iPhone.

Not for those who...

  • Are happy with Apple's built-in security features.

Why we love it

If you’re looking to add an extra layer of security to your iOS device, Lookout is a great choice especially with the great number of free features. The Apple Watch scream feature is definitely worth the cost of admission. It can also automatically back up your contacts. A premium subscriber can also back up their photos.
