Downloaded AT&T App

I downloaded an app a couple of years ago, at least, that kept your phone from ringing if the phone number was not in your contacts. But, it does show up as a missed call. This app was a feature that ATT provided. Now, I would need to remove the app but I have no idea how to find it much less remove the app.

Hi Foundjoy! Here's how to remove AT&T Call Protect from your phone.


You should be able to uninstall the app simply by following the recommended instructions by @sandblaster. If you need additional assistance, view the instructions provided at our Device Support Center.


After selecting your make and model choose App Management followed by Download Apps & Games. Also, AT&T Call Protect is being phased out, so once you remove the app from your device you may not be able to resume your subscription.


In its place is AT&T ActiveArmor mobile security app which will provide all the great features you enjoyed with AT&T Call Protect.


ActiveArmor is included with some plans, and no action is needed. To check your plan:

  1. Go to your myAT&T account overview. Sign in, if asked.
  2. Scroll to My devices and select Manage add-ons for the phone number you want to check.
  3. Look for ActiveArmor mobile security or ActiveArmor advanced mobile security (no extra charge).
    • If you see it, your plan includes the version shown.
    • If you don’t see it, your plan doesn’t include it.
  4. Uninstall the AT&T Call Protect app if it is currently downloaded to your device.

Once you accept the Terms & Conditions, you can access your call features. Just open the app and choose Calls to access your call logs and more.


While the basic features of AT&T ActiveArmor mobile security are free to AT&T Wireless (Postpaid) and PREPAID customers, you can upgrade to advanced mobile security features only for $3.99 month.


We hope this info helps. Thank you for reaching out to AT&T Community Forums.

Launch each app on your phone and when you find the one that you are looking for, go through the app delete/removal process for the phone’s OS.

The app name is probably “call protect”, try searching your phone for that name.
