What Are the Features of AT&T ActiveArmor for AT&T Fiber?

Customers of AT&T Fiber can take advantage of many features of AT&T’s ActiveArmor service to keep their devices safe from online threats.

Keep in mind that, although some features are included, many of this service’s features are premium paid features.

The complimentary version of AT&T ActiveArmor includes a built-in defense against online threats, security for the devices connected to your network, and personal data protection. Although this is a great place to start, many savvy users may find the premium features desirable.

One of those desirable features includes the ability to set up a Virtual Private Network (VPN) on your home connection.

When you use a VPN at Home, information about your digital footprint is further disguised so that digital attackers have fewer opportunities to take advantage of you through the data naturally embedded in your connection.

You’ll also be able to use the Threat Activity Dashboard to get a better view of how AT&T ActiveArmor is protecting your network and the devices you’ve connected to it.

This feature provides you with real-time insight into which threats are being blocked by this software.

Advanced Content Controls are part of the AT&T ActiveArmor upgraded arsenal, too!

With this service attribute, you can customize your security settings to set content filters on your network. With a content filter in place, you can control which websites are blocked or allowed to load on the devices in your network. This feature can be used as a parental control or as a simple way to eliminate unwanted websites from showing up on your devices.

Then, with ID Monitoring, you can let AT&T ActiveArmor keep track of data leaks. This feature will alert you when it encounters your personal information being used by an outside source.

No matter which tier of AT&T ActiveArmor you choose, you’ll be able to access your features through the AT&T Smart Home Manager app.

Through the app, you can manage your Wi-Fi password, network name, and control network access.

Can AT&T ActiveArmor Be Used for Mobile Devices?

AT&T ActiveArmor can be accessed on mobile devices! With the AT&T ActiveArmor app, qualified AT&T wireless customers can take your online security with you wherever you go.

This app helps users block fraudulent calls, send calls from unknown numbers straight to voicemail, create a personal block call list, check your passcodes, and stay up to date on system updates and data breaches.

With an upgraded tier of service through AT&T ActiveArmor Advanced Mobile Security, you can also back your cell phone up with premium security features such as Public Wi-Fi Protection.

Using this feature grants you your own Virtual Private Network (VPN) to use over public Wi-Fi connections.

You’ll want to take advantage of this feature because public Wi-Fi connections are known to present users with security threats.

You can also set up Identity Protection to get alerts if your personal information is ever leaked.

Additionally, there is help for anyone who has received mysterious calls from an unknown number—that is, pretty much everyone.

Who among us hasn’t received a voicemail from mechanically voiced caller urging us to call back right now because our car insurance is about to expire and if we don’t pay over the phone immediately, we’ll be arrested by the end of the day?

Check out if someone called you from one of those spam numbers with the Reverse Number Lookup provided by AT&T ActiveArmor Advanced Mobile Security.

You can also make sure that browsing the web on your phone remains protected from data breaches with the Safe Browsing feature from AT&T ActiveArmor Advanced Mobile Security.

With AT&T, you can find ways to stay secure online.
