From day one, our goal has always been to protect every device across the globe and we’re excited to announce that we’re one step closer to fulfilling that mission. Today marks the beginning of Lookout’s collaboration with AT&T to bring mobile security to all AT&T Android customers. Moving forward, Lookout will be available on every Android phone sold by 3 out of the 4 major US carriers.
Computing has changed forever and mobile devices are only the beginning of a massively connected world. According to Gartner, 1.8 billion mobile phones are expected to ship by the end of 2013, a 4.5 percent increase from the previous year. Lookout will now play a foundational role in protecting AT&T customers from emerging mobile threats and keeping the precious data their devices carry safe.
AT&T actively identifies software partners to drive growth and innovation on their platform. They understand that the next wave of mobile goes beyond connectivity and communications to services and apps that are available through the AT&T platform. We’re happy to be protecting AT&T customers and safeguarding their most personal computers.
Moving forward, the Lookout app will be installed on all compatible AT&T Android devices (currently installed on the Samsung Note 3). With Lookout, AT&T customers can have the confidence to use their phone to its fullest capability, and rest assured knowing they are protected no matter what they do. Whether it’s helping to find a lost/stolen phone, managing phone security or backing up precious data, we’re helping AT&T customers with a safer, more secure, mobile experience.
