Lookout Mobile Security is one of the most popular security apps available on Android -- you can read our full review of it here.
An announcement from Lookout to its users today confirms that it will be introducing a premium service in the near future, making some of the free features available for a price.
While Lookout hasn't said what the premium service will include, it did provide these details:
- A free version of Lookout will continue to be available
- Existing users of Lookout will continue to get all the features they enjoy right now for free, for the life of the account
- The premium version will be specifically to Android at the beginning, with other platforms to follow
A pretty good deal if you ask us. Lookout offers some great features and the fact that existing users can enjoy the product free of charge after the premium version comes out only emphasizes the need for customers to try this out. If you haven't tried Lookout yet, find the link and the QR code to follow. For a full look at the announcement, check after the break. [Lookout]
We're excited to let you know that we'll be releasing Lookout Mobile Security Premium for Android later this year. We will continue to offer our award-winning free Lookout product and we will be adding a premium offering for those of you who want added protection. While we can't reveal the details of the Premium version just yet, we can tell you what will happen for our existing users.
For you, nothing changes-- unless you want it to! Because you are an existing Lookout user you can continue to use the same great Lookout product you know and love for as long as you want, free of charge. While we will continue to offer a free product, a few of our free features will become premium features for new users. Existing users like yourself will get to keep using those features free of charge for the life of your account. If you are interested in upgrading to the new Premium product, you'll have the option to do that. And if you change your mind, you can always go back to what you have today for free.
Here's How it Will Work:
- We will continue to have a great free version of Lookout
- Lookout Premium will be coming out soon (more details, including price, to come)
- You'll have the option to upgrade to Lookout Premium
- For existing users, you get to continue using all the features in your Free product today, for the life of your account
- Note: The first version of Lookout Premium will be for Android users only. Additional platforms will follow.
When we release more information about Lookout Premium, you'll be first to know. Stay tuned and thank you for supporting Lookout. If you have any questions, please send us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the meantime, tell your friends to sign up for Lookout now!
