We perform our own virus and malware analysis and push out updates to the virus-checking system on a regular basis. Lookout on your phone or tablet will check in with our servers and update as necessary with the current files to keep your devices protected. Have a look at the "Important Stuff" section in the Dashboard of your account to see what Lookout has found on your device lately.
Here is more information on what happens when Lookout finds a threat on your phone. We don't scan your email.
Note: Lookout does not flag viruses that do not harm mobile devices. So, if you are an adventurous sort who likes to run tests, and you install a computer virus file to your mobile device, the Lookout app will not flag it because it does not harm mobile devices.
