Lookout Introduces Theft Alerts

June 10, 2014

Lookout introduced Theft Alerts to its product Lookout Mobile Security.

According to a release, Theft Alerts provides users with crucial, contextual alerts anytime suspicious activity occurs on their device, giving users timely information to get their phone back. Theft Alerts is now available in Lookout Mobile Security Premium on Android and iOS.

"From the day we started Lookout, we've dedicated ourselves to fighting smartphone theft," said Kevin Mahaffey, co-founder and CTO of Lookout. "Today, the problem has grown so large that nearly 70 percent of phone theft victims never get their phone back. This is not right. That's why we decided to build Theft Alerts, a real-time service that intelligently arms users with information they need to get their precious devices and data back."
