What is the AT&T ActiveArmor Mobile Security App?

A woman uses ActiveArmor on her smartphone.

When your phone is your life, protecting it and what is on it is important. But you need multi-level protection to keep it safe from spammers, hackers, and any number of bad actors who want access to your phone for nefarious reasons.

Luckily, there’s something you can do to help stop them in their tracks: download the free AT&T ActiveArmor mobile security app, which is available exclusively for AT&T customers. In 2022, AT&T Call Protect and AT&T Mobile Security were merged into AT&T ActiveArmor, a free mobile app designed to help you strengthen your mobile security.  When you activate ActiveArmor on your phone, you can block spam calls[1], manage and block unknown callers, find out when your information has been found on the dark web (available on the paid version of the app, which is included in a Premium/Extra wireless plan), be alerted to company data breaches, and more.

Every AT&T wireless customer receives ActiveArmor as a free benefit. To activate it, all you need is an AT&T Wireless or AT&T PREPAID service and a compatible smartphone, either one that was purchased through AT&T or a device you bought yourself and activated through AT&T.

The free version of AT&T ActiveArmor is included with every AT&T phone plan and gives you:

  • Auto fraud call blocking
  • Spam call blocking
  • Nuisance call alerts
  • Nuisance call controls
  • Sends unknown calls to voicemail
  • Personal block list
  • Device security (including password and system checks for iOS, and password, device and app scan for Android)
  • Breach report alerts

But to really amp up your protection, opt for AT&T ActiveArmor Advanced. It’s included in some AT&T wireless plans and can be added to any plan for a cost. In addition to the benefits of the free version of ActiveArmor, ActiveArmor Advanced helps keep your data private on open Wi-Fi, helps keep you safe from malicious websites, monitors your personal information and more:

  • Public Wi-Fi protection
  • VPN + Wi-Fi alerts
  • Identity monitoring
  • Reverse number lookup
  • Caller ID
  • Safe browsing
  • Theft Alerts (for Android only)

To get ActiveArmor mobile security added to your smartphone, just download and install the free app from the app store. Once it’s installed, open the app to see the four categories of mobile security: My Identity, My Device, Calls and Network. You can work through each category to customize your security preferences, including breach report alerts setup, enable device security to help protect your personal data, block and manage spam calls, and more.
