  • Crashes iPhone 5S

    By ronmesa
    Crashed my iPhone rebooting the phone multiple times till I removed it. Had this installed for months and all of a sudden something went wrong "app_name":"Lookout","timestamp":"2017-07-23 19:19:11.51 -0700","app_version":"5.1.1"
  • False alerts

    By regisk59
    Apple watch on wrist, iPhone in pocket; false alerts frequently. Adjusted setting to LOWEST POSSIBLE ALERT level. Alerts while sitting at desk or table, watch your phone distance merely a foot apart. I now immediately tap 'mute for an hour' after the second false alert (several times a day) 😖. Pretty consistent nuisance. Using free version, definitely discourages upgrading to premium. IF 'mute' Not activated in the last hour, it will correctly alert about 5 steps from the phone... ONLY IF 'mute' isn't still active. 😐😳😕
  • False alerts

    By billyjames21
    I don't understand why this app keeps telling me about my missing device and that my SIM card was taken out when the phone was in my hand all day. Never took it out, lost service at the time the notification saying it was taken out from theft. It wasn't stolen or take out. Clearly false alerts.
  • No alert

    When I'm out of range, my watch doesn't ping, buzz, nothing. It just says "out of range." Not that helpful.
  • Loaded and running app

    By Thunderfan54
    Loaded and running the app. Backed up my contacts. Haven't had to use the 'missing device' feature so I cannot comment on that. Everything is working great at this point and have not purchased the premium or premium plus to get 'breach report' and 'identity protection' features.
  • Why I get this in the first place

    iCloud already does everything this thing does by itself. Not sure why I bothered to download it. Waste of space on your phone downloading apps that your phone already can do in iOS. Delete!
  • App Support difficulty

    By mrblrobinson
    As I promised I am updating my review on this app. My issue is described below followed by a response from the apps admin. After following those instructions I was able to eventually find the source of the problem. It was much simpler than I expected. So here's my suggestion for the admins of this app: Your customers don't pay attention to security on their device because we use apps like this to do that for us. If there is an issue or security breach with an app that we download and Lookout picks up on it, it would better serve us by revealing the source of the problem rather than just telling us there is a problem. I contacted apple support by email, phone and by going to the store behind this issue. I backed up my phone to my iMac in efforts of doing a hard reset on my phone to get rid of the problem AND taking a risk by infecting my iMac with whatever infected my phone. I stressed for a week behind security of my phone because of the information I keep in here. It was as simple as deleting an app that Lookout didn't like. I appreciate the awareness but the explanation of the problem has to get better. My initial problem is below: My phone just sent me an alert that my device has been jailbroken. Apple Support can't find anything on my device that suggests the same. If this were the case I have to factory reset my phone without backing up my current data which means I lose any recently added data since my last back up. I have no way to reach Lookout app support other than this review. I've search the app, the website, the Apple Store where you initially download this app. With that being said, 3 stars because at least the app works but I can't reach anyone with this developer to discuss how the alert located this "malicious malware." Will someone from this developer please reach out to me and advise how this problem came about? Thanks. I'll edit this to 5 stars if I get contacted and the problem is legit. Otherwise Apple support advised Apple devices don't need malware apps.
  • Worthless

    This app works about 1/2 the time. False alerts and no alerts when there should be. I'm sure they'll reply with there stock response about Bluetooth connectivity. So that causes alerts saying I'm getting too far away from my phone when it's sitting right next to me? Nope. Update......this morning the app says I'm almost out of range when both my phone and watch are right next to each other. I leave my watch at home and leave. No alert whatsoever. Apple, where are you? Why do you let people sell sham junk to your customers.
  • Notifications aren't accurate

    By Shin K.
    TL;DR: Don't download for Apple Watch. I downloaded this strictly for my Apple Watch. It constantly notified me that my phone was out of range even though it's in my pocket. When I actually did leave it, it didn't notify me at all. If you're advertising this as compatible, it should at least work some time. I just wish Apple made the Watch notify you when it disconnects rather than just the notification icon.
  • I should have waited

    Not ready for prime. Thankfully, my Bluetooth headset is more reliable in alerting me when I'm out of range. Please improve it.
