What is the AT&T ActiveArmor mobile security app?
The ActiveArmor mobile security app is the result of AT&T merging its two existing security apps, AT&T Call Protect and AT&T Mobile Security. ActiveArmor includes features such as spam call blocking, reverse phone number lookup, and alerts when companies have data breaches.
Many AT&T phones already have ActiveArmor enabled, but users need to download the app in order to adjust their settings. They must also meet certain hardware, software, and contractual requirements in order to use the service.
Does AT&T ActiveArmor stop spam texts?
AT&T encourages its customers to report spam messages by forwarding them to 7726 (SPAM) but does not offer protection from them through ActiveArmor. This is a big deficiency; Americans receive billions of spam texts
every month, and many of them are from scammers who try to trick people out of their hard-earned money.
Fortunately, Robokiller offers full protection from spam calls and
spam texts, so you can rest assured that you have the best defense against scammers on both mediums.
What happens when you block a number with AT&T ActiveArmor?
AT&T ActiveArmor gives users a personal blocklist so they can prevent individual numbers from calling them. Known spam numbers are automatically sent to voicemail, while numbers on the user’s personal blocklist won’t make it through at all. Unfortunately, there is no “allow” list to ensure that certain legitimate callers aren’t accidentally blocked.
Customization is an important factor when it comes to letting in the callers you want and denying the ones you don’t. Robokiller gives users customizable block and allow lists
so they can stay free from spam without missing important calls.
Is AT&T ActiveArmor free?
The free version of AT&T’s ActiveArmor is automatically enabled on all AT&T accounts, but users need to download the app themselves. The free edition of ActiveArmor excludes several features that are available in the Advanced version, which costs $3.99 per month per line.
Robokiller gives you access to the entire range of its features for $4.99 per month or $39.99 per year, and we start you off with a free 7-day trial
so you can try it out risk-free.
