    Some people have some pretty creative imaginations. Mobile Defense definitely does not create a virus. I've been running it for months now.

    It seemed fairly useless to me. I took it off after a week of playing around with it.

    Right. I don't typically lose my phone. I should have clarified, it was useless for me personally. Maybe it's a lifesaver for someone else.

    Neither app creates viruses on your phone.

    MD has recovery stories on their website.

    It's funny what a difference a day makes. You had a glowing review of Lookout yesterday:
