    Heya everyone! Terribly sorry if this is a repost or was already covered. I'm just wondering what people are using on their Droids.

    I use Antivirus and a friend is using lookout. Me being a bit nervous about the maount of info that Lookout has about your phone; I am wondering, anyone else have issue with that too? Or am I being overly nervous about it and is Lookout really that much better than Antivirus?

    None. So far all the anti virus apps search for viruses that affect windows. They nothing to protect the android operating system.

    I use Lockout also, and so far not a issue, but you have every right to be a bit worried, but again we are using a Google OS on our phones, and we all know what Google is about when i comes to personal information. :)

    You will, but none out right now will do a thing for ya. Its gotta be specifically designed for the android OS, and so far, none of them are.

    Agreed, as the Droid phones become more popular.. Users will start to target these phones for Trojans / Viruses.. The jail broken iPhones have already been hit..

    I have both Antivirus Pro and Lookout. Lookout seems to be more proactive.
