Lookout – Backup, Security and Missing Device
By Lookout, Inc.
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Don’t lose your iPhone or iPad again! Lookout is the best way to protect your precious iOS device from data loss, theft and other threats that put your personal information at risk.
See why more than 60 million users trust Lookout to protect their devices!
Lookout is the ONLY all-in-one security app that:
- Locates your lost device from anywhere, on any internet connected device
- Automatically saves your device's location before it runs out of battery
- Backs up your contacts automatically
- Notifies you if you have an out-of-date or insecure version of iOS
Log in to Lookout.com from any computer, tablet or phone to:
- Locate your lost or missing iOS device on a map
- Sound a loud alarm to find your lost device if you think it’s nearby (even if you left it on silent!)
- Display a custom ‘lost’ message on your device screen, complete with contact details, to get your device back faster! If you don't have a passcode set, anyone who finds your device can quickly swipe to call you at the number you provide.
- Call your missing device over the web from any web browser, in case you don't have another phone nearby. Note: this feature is only available if you do not have a passcode on your device.
- Download your contacts to transfer to a new device
For even better protection, you can upgrade to Lookout Premium at anytime within the free app. For $2.99/month or $29.99/year, you get:
- Automatic Photo Backup – access your photos anytime at Lookout.com
- Theft Alerts: Get an email with the location of your device when we notice behavior that could mean it has been stolen
- Manage multiple devices from one account
- Note: Like all subscription in-app purchases, Lookout Premium auto-renews each month or year. To disable auto-renewing, go to App Store -> Click on your Apple ID -> View Apple ID -> Manage Subscriptions and disable "Auto-Renewal".
Note: Continued use of GPS to track your phone can decrease battery life.
What's New in Version 3.9.1
App STILL Freezes/Crashes - FIX IT!
This App is useless. Recent update 3.9.1 on May 9th made it worse.
Long time user of Lookout. Current Lookout App (version 3.9.1) does not work with iPhone running iOS 8.3.
When opening the Lookout App it crashes and never opens or gets locked on the Green Screen w/the Logo and never opens. Double clicking to try and open from quick launches and my phone bricks and have to lock screen and restart start my phone.
Contacted support on 05-May-2015 who gave the below resolution, this worked for 1day and is not working again.
Please push and update to resolve this issue. Read all the reviews, obviously I am not the only one having this issue.
Previous Suggestions to Resolve App Crashing Issues:
Delete app, reinstall from App Store and log back in with your credentials. Voila!
Steps above are to resolve issues you may be experiencing with Lookout App Freezing on the Green Screen w/the Logo or crashing. Hope this resolves your issues, I'm on latest version of Lookout App 3.9 & iOS 8.3
I received this 'solution' from Lookout Support after submitting a ticket via email.
New Updates on iOS
It got worst! I couldn't locate any device and takes longer to search and it says "couldn't locate device" even the phone I'm searching is next to me. Plus I'm only using the free subscription for 2 devices NOW when I upgrade the app it's automatically upgrade the subscription to premium which I didn't even try the free one on the other device if it's working properly or not. Please fix this! I don't mind paying the premium if it's working properly.
The may 1st update ruined the app, it hangs up on green logo screen then crashes after few seconds, please restore it to the previous state. The newer update on May 9th didn't solve the problem either, still crashes on opening green screen.
