ATT Call Protect replaced

I received a text that ATT Call Protect was being replaced.

 Please uninstall Call Protect before you download the new app and sign in as before.

Call protect is based heavily on the "Hiya" app...on Android at least.  Unlike call protect...hiya can be used on phones without advanced features enabled.  

 

I just use it to filter spam.  Though it has a crappy caller ID function that pops up during calls.  I disabled the ID feature because its slow.

 

ATT has now rolled call protect into the security app.  I use my own apps for security.

No such notice for iOS, I wonder if there will be. I can't see a need for the app security or system security features since ATT does not touch iOS. They probably couldn't get such an app approved.
