    Lookout works very well. Additional features, like remote wipe, gps tracking, etc.

    You will most likely get a virus from an App more so then browsing the internet.

    So we know what you watch on your phone ;) The only reported viruses have come from apps that root your phone and then send info out. That's one more reason to root your phone and install superuser apk. It makes apps that use the su binary request so before hand. I'm not saying that someone hasn't found away to do it via the interwebs but it can happen
