    I'm suddenly getting a persistent popup message that says I need to click the link to reset the AT&T Mobile Security Lookout app, then log in with my password. Anyone know whether this is legitimate vs a phishing attempt? Thanks!

    Lookout is for real. You should see the app on your phone.

    Lookout might require you to change your password periodically.

    Newer AT&T variants don't have it, like my Note 10+.
    So it's model/year dependent.
    It never caught anything the whole time it was running, meh.

    I've only used the locate function. It's a dependable safety.

    nothing to worry about. I used lookout a few years ago before the google store and other places had their own automatic checks. lookout became unnecessary.

    I recall Lookout had a nice feature where if someone was unsuccessful in unlocking the phone screen, it would take a picture with the front-facing camera and email it to you so you can see who was trying to do it. I wish more phones would have that as a native feature.

    Thanks for all the feedback. I did a restart and the popup seems to have cleared.

    Learned this decades ago.
    You need to treat a smartphone like you do an expensive 10 speed racer; never leave it out of your sight for a second.
    Fortunately you can put the former in pocket rather than walk it.
    Maintaining physical possession is worth more than the best security...
    I don't like any apps that can lock me out of my own device.
    They are a menace with administrative authority.
    Act responsibly rather than relying on a big sister to maybe bail you out. Own it.
