Remove the AT&T ActiveArmor mobile security app

You can downgrade, deactivate, or uninstall the app from your phone.


Downgrade from Advanced mobile security to free mobile security

You have to downgrade from AT&T ActiveArmorSM advanced mobile security the same way you signed up for it. For example, if you subscribed from the app store on your phone, you’ll have to cancel your subscription there too. At the close of your current bill period, you will not have access to the advanced features, and you won’t be charged again. 

FYI: You’ll still have access to all the free mobile security features to help block spam, protect your device from unauthorized access, and more.

  2. Tap subscription, then Change Subscription.
  3. Select Downgrade to Free.

Uninstall the app
