My phone was stolen on my way to New York this weekend.  Once I realized it, I wanted to "Nuke" my phone because I have some "classified" info on it.  I had to find out the hard way that Lookout doesn't support wiping Android phones. Angry

User beware!

I'm going to make some enemies by saying this.

1.  Anyone who has unencrypted "classified" information on their phone, whether it is nuclear secrets or stuff they don't want their wife to know, deserves what they get.


2.  If you use an app without actually knowing what it does or does not do, you have no one to blame but yourself.  Don't blame the app.

Ok, I was half wrong.  Actually, I looked at the description in the android market and it didn't include those items.  I didn't see where those things were advertised.

You're right, but when I did that, I found this:

Wipe
Make sure your data doesn’t fall into the wrong hands. Wipe all data from your device, easily over the web. Don’t worry, with Lookout it’s all backed up.

Coming soon to Android.

Should I be looking for something else?  wink

Oops. Embarrassed


BTW, I never have anything on my phone that I consider confidential, but if I did, I'd encrypt it.

No saved passwords.  In fact the apps from my bank and broker don't even retain the username.  I subscribe to the theory that nothing can be stolen from a device if it isn't there.

Portable devices that can be removed from secured locations, should not contain anything sensitive.  But, I seem to be alone in that view.

Still, I like Lookout.  Of course, if I was really paranoid I'd worry about the safety of the data they back up. Smiley

11/9/10: Update from the marketing director. They just launched a new way for everyone in the company to submit feedback, and some of my feedback is being submitted through it. So if anyone has any feedback on problems or ideas on improvements, lemme know and I'll pass it on to her.



Edit:

Another reason to get Lookout Premium. Phone app helps police track down robbery suspect

That link is hilarious. Android/Lookout to the rescue. I bet that guy was cussing up a storm during the booking process. I got caught by a freaking smartphone! HAHA!  Smiley

Criminals getting owned by smartphones. We could make a whole show out of this. Maybe submit these stories to that show "Worlds Dumbest Criminals"

While in the Sprint store today the rep removed Lookout from my wifes phone claiming it was useless after the last 'mini' update due to what they have changed.   She didn't ask him to and he never asked permission.    Strange. 

Anybody know anything about this claim?

You gotta be careful with these Sprint stores. They think they own our phones. I took mine in the other day to have mine looked at for what turned out to be nothing. I got the phone back and drove home. I got an SMS and when I pulled my phone out of my pocket to check it I noticed an icon in the notification bar that wasn't supposed to be there. The Sprint rep installed ATK on my phone. I called up the guy and asked him who the hell authorized him to install an app on my phone without my permission especially that one of all apps. He proceeded to tell me that they tell all their customers to run that app and set all new Android customers up with ATK and that I should leave it on there to speed up the phone. I told him to do some research and do some Googling on ATK and task killers and I would be contacting Sprint. Sprint had no comment on the matter when I contacted them about it interestingly enough.

I'm interested in seeing what the outcome of this is.
