By Firas Azmeh

At Lookout, our mission has always been to make the mobile experience as secure as possible for customers. We’re proud to collaborate with AT&T to power and deliver the AT&T Mobile Security solution. And now, in an industry first, AT&T has announced that customers who subscribe to its Unlimited Elite and Extra consumer plans, as well as its Unlimited Business Performance and Elite plans, will have access to the advanced security features of its AT&T Mobile Security PLUS application at no additional charge.

AT&T is leading the way by ensuring that advanced mobile security features such as Safe Internet Browsing and Secure Wi-Fi VPN are built into their best Unlimited wireless rate plans. With this move, AT&T is addressing the increasing risk to consumers and businesses from mobile and underscores its commitment to delivering top-notch security.

“At AT&T we provide our customers with a fast, reliable and secure experience and enable world class protection to customers so they can focus on their lives and manage their business - with security and peace of mind,” said Barbara Roden, vice president of mobility at AT&T.

Since 2016, AT&T has blocked billions of robocalls for millions of customers. The AT&T Mobile Security application has been an important part of the AT&T security portfolio and a trusted resource for AT&T users. To help keep customers safe, it has performed billions of application scans to check for malware and device risks and warned millions of users when services they use are breached with helpful tips to resolve any issues.

Beyond basic device security and data breach protection, AT&T Mobile Security PLUS offers enhanced benefits that protect customers including:

  • Secure Wi-Fi protection - helps protect your data over open (unencrypted) Wi-Fi.
  • Safe Browsing - analyzes and warns you about suspicious websites.
  • Personal ID Monitor - notifies you if your personal information is found on the dark web.

AT&T also offers advanced mobile security features as part of a subscription service for other Rate Plans.

As the leader in mobile security, Lookout is trusted by millions of consumers, enterprises and government agencies worldwide. We’ve worked hard to build an industry-leading security platform. By analyzing nearly 200 million devices and over 100 million apps, we deliver modern endpoint protection that detects and protects from the growing threats on phones and tablets.
