Lookout, one of the well-known names in mobile security, is improving its offering today with what it calls "Theft Alerts." On top of the comprehensive suite of security features it already offers, Theft Alerts makes it even easier to be alerted and track when a phone is stolen. In the unfortunate event that someone takes your phone, you'll immediately be sent an email when the thief attempts to turn off the phone, remove the SIM, turn on airplane mode or remove a device administrator, including a picture from the phone's front-facing camera and the GPS coordinates of where it was last seen.

You'll then have the ability to remotely lock and wipe the device the next time that it's turned on, making sure that even though the thief has your phone, they won't have any of your personal information. The new Theft Alerts features will be available to Lookout Premium users, but to get everyone introduced to the features Free-level users will be able to use Theft Alerts until September 30th.
