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.
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.
