AT&T Partners with Lookout to Provide Device Security
Nov 7, 2013, 9:17 AM by Eric M. Zeman
AT&T today announced that it has partnered with security app provider Lookout in order to protect AT&T Android devices from app-based threats. Lookout's Mobile Security software is expected to be installed on most AT&T Android phones moving forward, starting with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, and will also be offered to older devices via software updates. The application will not need any type of set up, it works automatically in the background whenever the phone is turned on. The software will scan downloaded apps for potential threats. Apps that the Lookout software believes are not secure won't install and the device owner will be notified so appropriate steps can be taken. This software and service is free. Lookout and AT&T are also offering Lookout Premium, which adds the ability to backup photos, as well as remotely lock devices and wipe content, for $2.99 per month. Lookout has similar partnerships with Sprint and T-Mobile.
