Antivirus for the Droid…

November 5th, 2010 by steve

Yesterday I got a droid 2. Today, Ken, the RootKing, told me to put antivirus on it.

I put Lookout Mobile Security on it at Ken’s suggestion.

As my Apple buddy, Chris, often tells me, open systems have their problems, not the least of which is susceptibility to viruses.

Lookout is more than an antivirus app. It helps you locate your droid if it’s lost. It makes your droid make a loud noise. And it backs up your data.

Here’s the Lookout dashboard.

    I put Lookout on mine as well. the only thing it claims to contacts, but it doesn’t backup my full list of contacts. That doesn’t bother me as that isn’t the reason I got it. I manually backup up my full contact list every time I change it.
