Lookout is a mobile security app for Google Android which is designed to block spyware and viruses, backup your data, help you find your missing phone, and scan apps as you install them for potential threats. That’s what the free version of the app gets you. Starting November 16th, Lookout will also start offering a premium service for $2.99 per month or $29.99 per year.

Lookout Premium will offer a number of enhanced security features, including:

  • Login and wipe the data from your missing/stolen phone remotely, or lock your device
  • Backup and restore photos, call history, and contacts
  • Transfer backed up data to a new phone
  • Privacy adviser which lets you know which apps can access your private data

The company will offer a 30 day free trial of Lookout Premium if you don’t feel like shelling out cash just to test the app.
