AT&T has partnered with Lookout to create the AT&T Mobile Security app, which it is bringing to iOS devices for the first time beginning today. The app had previously only been available to Android phones. AT&T Mobile Security is available in free and paid versions. AT&T Mobile Security Basic only reminds people to update their devices to the latest operating system and to set a passcode to protect the phone. AT&T Mobile Security Plus adds several more features and requires a $3.99 per month subscription. For example, AT&T Mobile Security Plus includes a tool called Secure WiFi VPN, which automatically scans public WiFi networks before subscribers connect to determine whether or not the network is secure. If it isn't, the VPN kicks on automatically, encrypting the connection between device and the access point to protect user data. AT&T Mobile Security Plus also includes Breach Reports. Breach Reports will alert subscribers when companies, apps, or services they follow suffer a security breach that could leave their personal information exposed. The Breach Report offers subscribers advice on how best to protect themselves based on the type of breach. Customers who was more peace of mind can bundle AT&T Mobile Security with AT&T Call Protect, which offers spam warnings, manual call blocking, and automatic fraud blocking. AT&T Mobile Security Basic and AT&T Mobile Security Plus are available from the iTunes App Store and Google Play Store.
