In response to the questions regarding the nature of the special deal between AT&T and Lookout, an AT&T representative told a website named Mashable that AT&T is going to receive a percentage of the profits for each of Lookout’s users that upgrades to the Lookout premium service.
AT&T aims to boost the security of their Android line of mobile products; and they have announced a new deal with the software security firm Lookout. The contracted arrangement will allow AT&T to bundle Lookout’s security software with all of the Android smart phones and tablets offered by AT&T wireless carrier.
The AT&T Mobility's vice president of the section voice and prepaid products Judy Cavalieri said that their goal is to ensure that they provide their customers with the most comprehensive security system, and they are excited to team up with the Lookout to help protect their customers.
Being currently available as a free download application, Lookout’s software is already a popular choice among the Android users, boasting a 4.5 rating in the Google Play store. And, the free of cost version of this software has the ability to automatically snap photos of just anyone attempting to unlock the Android smart phone and it helps the user to locate a lost Android device via the GPS.
At present, the premium version of Lookout which costs about $2.99 per month or $29.99 per year comes with a free 2GB of cloud storage; which allows the user to remotely lock and also wipe the device up. It also offers the ability to see which applications have access to the user’s private information. All of these are simply great extras for this price; however, they are just part of the reason why Lookout security application has become so much popular; mostly with the Android smart phone users.
