I'm highlighting a really useful app today that many of you will want to look into for the security and protection of your Nexus 7. 'Lookout Security & Antivirus' is a full featured antivirus and malware program for your tablet that just also happens to have an awesome 'find my device' feature to help track your lost and stolen Nexus 7 if you should ever so happen to have that bad situation. Now there's a host of options in 'Lookout' and while most are available for free there's a 'Premium' version that costs $2.99/month that offers even more options and power. Here's a short overview of 'Lookout' and while it references phones it works for the Nexus 7 just as nicely.
Now there's far too many features to go into in detail in this short overview but in a nutshell some of what you can expect and do with 'Lookout' are: detect and remove viruses, spyware and malware, scan numbers you might click in a browser to warn against dangers such as wiping your device, schedule antivirus, block dangerous urls, find your phone on a google map instantly using Lookout.com, sound a loud alarm and 'scream' to find it even if it's set to 'silent', locate your phone even if the battery is dying...locate last known location, remotely lock and wipe your phone, backup contacts, restore all contacts, protect and transfer pictures, call history and more.
In a nutshell you can see this is one handy app. The ability to track and retrieve a lost or stolen device alone is worth the download. Now some of the features above are only available in the 'Premium' version and there's even more to learn so if what I've just outlined sounds like something that's useful to have on your tablet hit the link below and check out 'Lookout Security & Antivirus'.
