On preloaded devices Lookout automatically scans apps, even without an account.
Lookout comes preloaded on certain devices and automatically scans all apps upon installation. This will happen regardless of whether you create a Lookout account. We of course recommend that you open the Lookout app and create an account—or sign in as an existing user if you already have an account—in order to utilize other great Lookout services and fully protect your device.
If you wish to stop Lookout's App Security from automatically scanning your apps, please follow these steps:
- Launch Lookout from the apps drawer on your device. Look for the green shield icon.
- Choose the menu button at the top left
- Select "Settings"
- Uncheck "App security"
