Lookout’s newly redesigned mobile web experience makes it easier to find your phone, even when you’re on the go.

We know that 60% of our users who locate their phone with Lookout do so from another mobile phone or tablet, so we wanted to make managing your phone from a different mobile device as simple as possible.

Simply log into mylookout.com from any phone or tablet to view your backed up contacts (and photos if you have Lookout Premium), find your phone quickly, and if you have premium, lock and wipe it too. You’ll now also notice a sleek and intuitive design that is friendly to clumsy fingers and enables you to manage your settings or locate your phone even easier than before. With Lookout, you can access your phone as if it’s right next to you even if you don’t actually have it with you – look up a contact that you need to call, access any of your photos, or make it “SCREAM” (even if it’s on silent) - all from any mobile device.

This is just the first phase of some exciting things we are working on to completely revamp the Lookout experience and we can’t wait to show you what else we’ve got in store.

Check it out for yourself! Go onto your phone and log into your Lookout account at mylookout.com/m to see how just how easy it is to find your phone on the go.

Five Cool Things You Can Do with Lookout

Go to the Lookout mobile website, log-in with your email and password so that you can:

Pinpoint your missing phone’s location on a Google map (Hint: keep hitting the “Locate” button to see if your phone has moved, like in a taxi cab.) Make your phone “Scream.” Sound a loud alarm even if it is on silent or vibrate mode View the recent photos you’ve taken from your phone that Lookout has saved for you. If you forget your phone at home, log into Lookout from a friend’s phone and access your entire Google contact list. You can even directly call a friend on your contact list from the mobile website, and let him know you left your phone at home. If you suspect your phone’s been stolen, Lock or Wipe it from a friend’s phone quickly so that no one else can access the data on your phone.

We’ll be translating into additional languages soon! And if you are one of the few people without Lookout on your phone, download Lookout from the Google Play Store for free.
