AT&T ActiveArmor℠ brings together all of AT&T’s security expertise, resources, and assets. It includes 24/7 network protection technology that helps detect and prevent threats, plus additional security apps and solutions.

The best part is that AT&T wireless customers can enjoy the benefits of many of these capabilities for no extra cost. Here’s what you need to know.

Security solutions for all AT&T wireless customers

AT&T wireless customers automatically receive essential security features for no extra cost. These include network-based automatic fraud call blocking and suspected spam risk alerts.
