AT&T is to pre-install Lookout Mobile Security, an app that enables users to find missing or stolen phones – as well as manage phone security and back up data – on Android devices.
Lookout Mobile Security is already available on Google Play.
AT&T is to offer basic pre-installed protection with Lookout for free, but charge $2.99 per month for a premium version.
From Lookout.com, customers can manage multiple mobile devices and locate a phone or tablet on a Google map.
“Our goal is to ensure that we provide our customers with the most comprehensive security, and we are excited to team up with Lookout to help protect our customers,” said Judy Cavalieri, AT&T Mobility VP of voice and prepaid products.
“This announcement marks a significant milestone for Lookout,” claimed Tim Roper, Lookout’s vice president of global business development.
