AT&T Locker shuts down in August

AT&T Locker service shutting down on August 3, 2017
AT&T Locker official shut down notification
This cloud service does not allow its users to store new files since June 4, and all existing files will be deleted in August. The service will be discontinued on August 3, announces AT&T.

AT&T Locker is an attractive free cloud backup/digital locker service, offering no less than 50 GB of space to those interested in keeping their files safe. Sadly, AT&T has decided to shut down this service in early August, and the official Locker website already displays a notification with the relevant details.

In addition to the notification mentioned above that appears on the official AT&T Locker website, existing users of this service also received an email thanking them for using the service and detailing what is going to happen. This email reads "We're discontinuing AT&T Locker, and access to your Locker account will close on August 3, 2017. All photos, videos, contacts, music, and documents stored in your Locker will be permanently deleted after that date." It also reminds that new files cannot be stored "after June 4, 2017." Strange enough, because I got this email a few hours ago, and June 4 has been in the past for almost a week now.

AT&T Locker users can move to one of the existing similar free cloud solutions available in the wild, such as OneDrive, Dropbox, Google Drive, and so on.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
