    After a couple of weeks..This APP just is terrible and quite intrusive. Seems to just collect DATA and can be installed only to the internal memory, then becomes a Device ADMIN. by default. (!)
    IMO..Made for users who play around with market fire, like messing w/questionable unauthorized, third-party any-language apps. Will not play nicely with this device. And non-removable by the traditional method.

    So b4 one reformats and does a clean boot..Here is how...>

    And..YES..the device does now, seem to be rendering and booting quicker.

    For all those looking to solve the mystery of where the heck Device Admin settings are on phones like HTC Vivid like I have been doing: I was looking to deactivate Lookout. My exhaustive search has informed me to look in Settings then Location and Security…which is nonexistent. Then I finally had a ‘duh moment’. Go to the app itself and deactivate device admin! Then the ‘uninstall’ option is granted/lit up in your Settings–Apps. Frustration induced self harm/binge drinking averted.

    Hi Everyone,

    First post, so I hope this isnt too bad and it helps someone else out. I am very happy to finally be able to contribute back to a forum that has helped me several times. Okay, below are the steps To uninstall lookout app on Galaxy S5

    1) open lookout app

    A) Go into the three line option located on top right of the screen

    B) Uncheck device administrator in this list

    3)Close lookout app

    4) Uninstall app by dragging all Lookout icons to top trash can icon located at the top of the phone screen

    Hope that helps someone else out :)
